Be an informed voter produces nonpartisan candidate guides that show where candidates stand, with links to credible sources, so you can go to the polls with confidence. We’ll roll out 2022 Guides as candidates are determined by the primaries.

Candidate & Issue Guides

“In today’s day and age, it’s hard to know what’s real and not. These nonpartisan guides gave students the ability to be educated voters and know they were getting accurate information.”

Katie Prebelich, Central Michigan University Student Body President

Our Goals

People often don’t vote because they don’t know where candidates stand and are confused about how to find out. Widespread political cynicism, disinformation, and spin don’t help. Produced since 2012, by a team of veteran journalists, our nonpartisan candidate guides provide a concise and credible way to compare candidates’ stands and make clear why voting matters. Our 2022 guides will introduce a new, more interactive online format to accompany printable PDFs.
