‘The Mud Stops Here!’: New Website – InformTheVoters.org – Encourages Presidential Candidates to Provide Clear Position Statements on Key Election Issues
MINNEAPOLIS, ST. PAUL and EAGAN, Minn., July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Approaching another historic election, the American people have never had more access to information … or less certainty about the accuracy of that information. We are bombarded by negative ads, political insider predictions, and news stories vulnerable to partisanship. We hear sound bites from candidate speeches, but those speeches are almost always tailored to appeal to special interest groups. We watch candidates perform at presidential debates, but we may not remember the details and nuances of their statements afterwards. Opinions, predictions and political websites abound, but sound, nonpartisan information is elusive and hard to find when it exists.
Voters deserve an unbiased, accessible and comprehensive website where they can compare candidate positions on the key issues in the 2012 presidential election.
The sheer volume of media outlets and political websites is overwhelming. There is no single, clear, nonpartisan resource offering all of the critical information voters need to compare candidate positions on a comprehensive list of the election issues.
The success of our democracy rests in the hands of our voting citizens. The choices we make in the voting booth determine our country’s future.
We want voters to have access to InformTheVoters.org, where the candidates themselves provide their position statements on key election issues. This resource would give voters the clear, unbiased information they need to evaluate the candidates, issue by issue.
Tell the presidential candidates to provide us with their position on each key election issue so we can create a go-to, nonpartisan online resource for voters to compare candidate positions, side by side, to support informed voter choice on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
