Party Platform Comparison
How is a voter to gain insight into candidates when iVoterGuide doesn’t cover the race (yet!), when a candidate fails to answer the survey, or before a candidate has a voting record?
One thing every candidate does have in a General Election is a party affiliation. Whether it’s a “D,” an “R,” an “L,” a “G,” or an “I,” each candidate purposely chose their party affiliation and wanted that particular letter of the alphabet beside their name on the ballot. They chose the party most representative of their values and positions, so shouldn’t we know what those positions are?
As the major parties increasingly disagree on a number of foundational issues, knowing what the parties stand for is an important part of being an educated voter.
