Voter Guides

For pressing races across the country, the AAUW Action Fund voter guides provide nonpartisan information about candidates’ positions on issues like equal pay, education, campaign finance, and reproductive rights. Candidates’ positions on the issues are determined using their voting records, public statements, and campaign position papers, as well as information posted by trusted sources on the Internet. All campaigns are contacted via e-mail in advance of publication.

AAUW Action Fund voter guides are provided as a public service and are not intended to be an endorsement of any candidate or political party. No AAUW policy position is implied by the descriptions of these issues. See our complete member-endorsed Public Policy Program for more information and contact VoterEd@aauw.org with any questions.
