Candidate Questionnaires and Voter Guides, by Nonprofit VOTE

Candidate Questionnaires and Voter Guides is FREE courtesy of Nonprofit VOTE

Candidate questionnaires are a good way for your organization to help your clients and constituents become familiar with the candidates and their views. It’s also an effective way to let candidates know what issues are of concern to you and your community. Creating a questionnaire and getting candidates to respond takes time and persistence. Consider partnering with other organizations or forming a coalition to distribute the workload and increase the likelihood that
your questionnaire will be taken seriously. Be prepared to do a lot of follow up with candidates and their campaigns.
Keeping the questionnaire relatively short will increase the likelihood of getting responses. 501(c)(3) nonprofits must remain nonpartisan. A questionnaire or guide cannot be created and distributed with the intention of swaying voters for or against specific candidates. Your goal should be to provide nonpartisan education about the candidate’s positions on issues important to you and the general public.
