PROVIDING ANSWERS FOR CITIZENS
One of the more
unfortunate results of modern communications
strategies and technology is the ability of elected
officials, and candidates for elected officer, to
avoid answering questions.
Too often politicians use their own staffs and paid
consultants to deliver the messages they choose to
deliver and only those messages.
And that's what makes the League of Women Voters Candidates
Answers questionnaire and Vote411.org site so valuable
The League has sent questionnaires to 311 candidates
running in the Fall elections.
It will publish the answers online at Vote411.org
in mid-July or so.
Some local Leagues will also publish printed voter
We've made it clear in the post that we believe voters
should not vote for candidates who refuse or neglect
to respond to the League's questionnaire.
We plan to do so again.
We ask in advance that all candidates answer all questions
completely and honestly.
We'll let you know who chooses not to later this summer.
