HOW DOES THE VOTER GUIDE WORK?

The vast majority of potential Texas LP delegates have not made up their minds on a Presidential candidate to support, and almost as many are Not Satisfied as are Satisfied with their choices.  The same is true nationwide.  There is no professional polling done or planned for the LP nomination process, and even though 62 candidates have filed, and at least 28 are mounting an active campaign for nomination.  There is no Voter Guide or Delegate Resource to help Libertarian candidates and delegates.

We are launching the Texas Free Press Voter Guide to fill this need and serve candidates, the media and Libertarian voters.  So who is included?  Our goal is to give every Libertarian delegate to the National Convention a consistent level of basic key information on all active candidates to inform their decisions.

We solicited and accepted submissions from all Libertarian Party candidates who filed with a statement of candidacy with FEC, and with an FEC filed campaign committee who 1) respond to and complete the Voter Guide Questionnaire, 2) demonstrate a minimum level of active campaign either through fundraising, media, or campaign activities, an 3) are constitutionally eligible for the office of President.  We will reserve the right to reject questionnaires that do not meet our minimum level of quality in the responses, including grammar, completeness, command of the questions, and coherence, or that are late.  We will not generally reject questionnaires based on political or policy choices, nor will we reject questionnaires based on either amount raised, polling or other indications of support, resources to campaign, media coverage, or adherence to the LP platform.  We may however reject applications or candidacies that we consider to be of limited merit or outside of our guidelines for professionalism, seriousness, and quality. The decisions on meeting the criteria above will be made at our sole discretion, there is no appeal for our decision.
