Primary Election Voter Guide Available
Special Report - April 12, 2010
In an effort to better equip Tar Heel voters for the upcoming elections, the North Carolina Family Policy Council has activated its 2010 Primary Election Voter Guide Web site. The 2010 Primary Election Voter Guide Web site is impartial and nonpartisan, and features responses directly from the candidates about where they stand on issues such as: a marriage protection amendment, abortion, adoption, budget and taxes, school choice, sex education, gambling, homosexual rights, religious freedom, embryonic stem cell research, end of life decisions, and more.
In preparation for the May 4 Primary Election, the Council sent questionnaires by certified mail to 330 candidates for the following offices in districts/races with Primary Election opposition, and over 52 percent of the candidates responded:
U.S. Senate and U.S. House
N.C. Court of Appeals and N.C. Superior Court
N.C. Senate and N.C. House
“We encourage North Carolina voters to access this valuable information about where candidates stand on important family-related issues,” said North Carolina Family Policy Council president Bill Brooks. “Often, there is a void when it comes to candidates’ positions on issues like a state marriage amendment, the value of human life, school choice, religious freedom and other matters that millions of North Carolina voters consider important.”
Brooks added, “We hope the Council’s 2010 Voter Guide will help to fill this void and allow voters to go to the polls with a better understanding of where the candidates stand and which candidates best reflect their point-of-view.”
Following the May 4 Primary Election, the North Carolina Family Policy Council will send questionnaires to candidates in districts/races that did not have primary opposition. This information, along with the information for candidates who win their Primary Elections, will be published and distributed in print form and on an updated Web site before the November 2 General Election.
You can access the 2010 Primary Election Voter Guide Web site through The North Carolina Family Policy Council’s Voter Resources page which also includes a 2010 Voter Registration Information Toolkit to assist citizens in implementing a voter registration drive in their church, civic organization, local community, etc.
