Non Partisan candidates information

2014-10-27-NM_senate_Udall_Weh_jpeg.jpgAre you looking for a nonpartisan voter guide to the Tom Udall vs. Allen Weh Senate race? One that will give you an unbiased, no-spin comparison of candidate positions on key issues? That's what our Campus Election Engagement Project guide will give you! We are a national nonpartisan initiative working with college and university administrators, faculty, and student leaders to increase student participation in America's elections. For the 2014 elections we have created and distributed voter guides to campuses in more than 20 states so they can provide their communities with accurate information for informed voting. Because these guides have been so well received and are useful for all voting citizens who want to be better informed, we are also posting them here.

We developed our guides by analyzing information from trusted resources such as Votesmart.org, Ontheissues.org, Ballotpedia.com, Politifact.com, Factcheck.org, Vote411.org and from candidate websites, public debates and interviews, and statements in major media outlets. We also showed them to groups like campus Young Republicans and Young Democrats at the schools we work with to verify their fairness and lack of bias.

So here are the issue-by-issue stands for Tom Udall and Allen Weh, with additional links at the bottom for each candidate if you'd like to dig deeper. (You can also find New Mexico's Governor guide here.)

What are good non partisan websites for learning about the presidential candidates? | Yahoo Answers

I would recommend glassbooth. It is a non-partisian site where you take a survey on the issues most important to you, then answer a few questions about those issues. The site then matches you to candidates and shows the percentage similarity in your beliefs. The questions are unbiased, the site has no ads, and you can look at each candidate's position (based on speeches, video clips AND voting record)
