On The Ballot 2006

The Citizens Policy Center released a comprehensive guide to candidates and issues this week. "On The Ballot 2006" is available in pdf format at under New Publications. The document is 295 pages of information keyed to candidates for the state house and state senate. Candidate bios and responses are thorough and provide the in-depth information voters need to make informed decisions. If you don't have time to read the whole guide, check out your local candidates and read the executive summaries.

The forward includes the following promise:
"You can trust that the information in this publication is objective, truthful and credible. We don’t believe in pushing candidates to answer subjective questions to promote a particular legislative agenda. We do believe in transparency, straight answers and the power of our citizens to make smart choices at the polls."

The guide will be followed up by an Opportunity Index that will analyze legislators' voting records on health, education and economic development issues.
