Check out RANGE Media
Please have a look at RANGE Media’s Voter’s Guide to Voter Guides, especially if your ballot just arrived or arrives over the weekend—and you want to send it in or put it in a drop box so that campaigns lose their incentive to knock on your door. (The fact that you voted is available to them, but not for whom you voted.)
I do have one addition. The RANGE article mentions the Secretary of State’s Voters Guide, but does not mention that, thanks to a recently passed state law, residents of Spokane County will also receive in the mail a similar guide that covers right down to the local races. (Some Washington State counties may combine theirs with the Secretary of State’s Voter’s Guide. We in Spokane County have a separate guide for technical reasons of publication deadlines.) I urge you to go beyond these two government-mandated guides, since they mostly put forward photos and abbreviated campaign literature provided by the candidates themselves.
My personal favorite in the ProgressiveVotersGuide.com as a positive voter’s guide and WeBelieveWeVote.com (WBWV) primarily as a negative indicator. Check out RANGE’s comments on both. (If you visit WBWV, be sure to drill down to the “Survey” each candidate who responds has to fill out in order to receive a rating. The questions and responses are often illuminating. For the November General Election WBWV has made it harder in some races to find the raw Survey results. One sometimes needs to click on the candidate’s name, then scroll down, and click on “View Survey Responses” under “Alignment Rating and Survey.”)
Keep to the high ground,
