CEEP 2012 Presidential Election Issue Guide
Brought to you by Campus Election Engagement Project and Project Vote Smart.Project Vote
Smart, a non-partisan, nonprofit organization providing factual, unbiased information on candidates, officials, issues, and legislation, with stands inferred by VoteSmart from public statements rather than the result of answering formal questionnaires, which neither major party candidate answered. For more detailedinformation visit the Issue Position pages of the respective candidate - barackobama.com/issues and mittromney.com/issues
See also the University of Pennsylvania Annenberg School’s www.factcheck.org, which lets you search the truth of candidate stands.
For a comprehensive guide to all races including state initiatives and local
Congressional and legislative races, see www.vote411.org, created by the League of
Women Voters. You enter your address, or the address of your school, and click “Get
Personalized Information on Candidates and Issues,” and it will give you
information provided by the respective campaigns on their stands, taking you first
through national races, then statewide races, then local ones. You do have to scroll
down to the bottom where it offers a comparison, because checking the box by a
candidate won’t automatically bring up their stands.
