The Municipal League is looking for volunteers to help their fellow citizens be well-informed before they vote.
The volunteers evaluate political candidates for a variety of public offices. Activities include researching work histories and references of candidates, interviewing candidates and recommending candidate ratings. The final result is a Voter’s Guide designed to provide nonpartisan information prior to the Aug. 21 primary.
Candidates are rated on four criteria: Involvement, Character, Effectiveness and Knowledge. The league does not use partisan criteria and does not endorse candidates.
Volunteers will be asked to evaluate candidates only to determine their fitness for office.
