Voters Guide responses are a value to citizens

Posted

While looking over the Voters Guide last week, a light bulb went off. So many candidates had “no response to questions” under their names.
I decided to count them up and found that out of the 31 Republicans who have thrown their hats in the ring, 22 had not responded to the questions posed by the League of Women Voters. That’s approximately 70%.
On the Democratic side, of the 17 running for public office, there were four “no responses.” That’s approximately 24%.
The fact that so many candidates did not take the time to respond to a few simple questions is very telling.

I, for one, almost never vote for a candidate who did not take the time to respond. Of course, there may be extenuating circumstances, but not to the tune of 70% and 24%.
Do yourself a favor and review the Voters Guide before casting your ballot. If you had planned to vote for a “no response to questions” candidate, please reconsider. That’s a red flag.
