Please complete all that you can...if you don't want to answer a question, or it doesn't make sense, just submit your comments. No biggie. We're here to help. You can always come back and add more later. See more details at the end of the survey. WE POST WHAT YOU SEND (after we confirm it truly came from you!...AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR PROOFING OF OUR POSTING IF YOU WILL, BEFORE WE POST IT...so, it can take a few days...)

Remember, THIS FORM IS FOR YOU TO TELL YOUR POTENTIAL VOTERS HOW YOU WILL VOTE. If you are pro-life, say so. If you are pro-choice, say so. Yes, you'll lose some votes either way, but use the comments section to explain your position, and what your TRUE CORE values are. Most voters want to hear your positions on TAXES, IMMIGRATION, and GOVT. SIZE BEFORE THEY will even listen or care about anything else. This is YOUR opportunity to reach out to the thousands who go to this site. We're over a million hits and growing....kind of amazing really.....

All the best.

For currently elected officials, stands on issues are available as there is a public record and ratings from many groups to determine  an incumbent's stand . For new candidates, the electorate often  relies on press releases from the candidate's committee, radio clips, cable access TV, questionnaires, pledges, endorsements, and newspaper and other materials. VoteCoreValues has selected some top issues important to some of the electorate and is requesting your input; it is important that the voters are completely educated on your stands versus your opposition's stands.

You should know that VoteCoreValues is a increasingly growing (details to follow) and we welcome the support of political activists. Your answers, should you be elected into office, will be monitored for candor with the electorate and updated as required.  Please take your time to fill out this questionnaire, and add any relevant materials you wish for us to link to your posting on this website. Letting voters know your stand on the issues of the day can only help us all to better understand one another, and possibly help each other to grow.

 

Your candidate may be pro-life or pro-abortion. That is his/her option. This site is designed to reflect votes and positions so that YOU know what your candidate's CORE position is on various issues.  In the future, our database of each candidate's rating will contain links detailing the candidate's database of votes which earned each particular rating.
