The Electable candidate questionnaire section allows voters to compare responses among opponents. For each race you enter, you’ll be asked some basic questions by Electable. News outlets covering your races may also ask you questions. These will be displayed on your profile.

Responding to questions

Candidate questionnaire

On your profile page you’ll find the questionnaire section, each question followed by an Edit button. You’ll have 5000 characters to respond to the question. Each question must be saved separately.

Questionnaire time limit

A week before the election your responses will be locked. We do this for a few reasons. First, to prevent a back and forth between candidates prior to the election. Second, to prevent libelous statements in responses. Many voters will be looking at profiles last minute; a week’s grace time will allow other candidates to report statements that aren’t based on fact.
