Pick a Candidate

Our national publication, Pick a Candidate advises: Know the candidates - Know the issues - Know thyself! Below is an exercise to help you do all three. You can put a + or a - or a 0 next to each attribute as you compare candidates; or you can "weight" your vote. When you are finished, tally up! You may be surprised at the results. What's more, you may surprise yourself as you discover what you really value in a candidate.

+ favorable
- unfavorable
