Here at Veritas Domain we have been asked about an Orange County Voter’s Guide for Conservative Christians.  They are available on Election Forum’s website.

I post them here below.

2012 Voter Guide Recommendations
for Orange County

If our recommended candidate won the election, a Smiley appears next to their name. If our candidate lost, a frowny face appears.

We appreciate each person who voted at the polls, every one of our readers and all of you who forwarded the recommendations to friends, church members and your families.

Ratings:

Every candidate is considered after thorough research; we also have a questionnaire for candidates to complete.

  • thumb upthumb upthumb up : Strongest endorsement for values voters
  • thumb upthumb up : Above average
  • thumb up : Better than opponent, vote represents “lesser of two evils”
  • No Endorsement: We either oppose the candidates or have found no reason to support a candidate. If you don’t vote for a candidate or issue, all your other votes still count.

Note: Historically third party candidates and write—in candidates do not win statewide elections in California. Click here to see article on Voting Your Christian Values.

Judicial

Electionforum.org ranks every aspect of a judicial candidate’s record on a scale of 1 (most activist) to 10 (most constructionist).

Nothing is overlooked, from a judge’s rulings to on-the-record statements to American Bar Association ratings. We also look at their stated positions and contributions as well as who’s endorsing them.

Finally, each judge’s career is considered from a bird’s-eye view. Experience. Integrity. Commitment to community. We even personally talk to the candidates.
