These are non-partisan, Voter Information Digests of all candidates' positions on several important, distinct issues. These are based directly on either public statements or specific voting records. This is only for clarity on candidates' positions and does not constitute endorsement of, or opposition to, any particular candidate. They are appropriate for distribution in any venue.
The candidates’ positions on the following issues are determined from signed questionnaires, previous voting records, or confirmed public statements:
1. Does the office seeker support legal protection for unborn children?
2. Does the office seeker support requiring parental consent before an abortion can be performed on a minor child?
3. Does the office seeker oppose efforts promoting a state policy of euthanasia such as physician assisted suicide?
