Q: This candidate is prochoice. Why isn't there a check mark next to their name?
A: The recommendation does not indicate the only prochoice candidate - in the vast majority of cases, we choose one candidate per race, just like a voter has to on their own ballot. It is also possible that we haven’t been able to find enough information to make a recommendation - in this case, we greatly appreciate suggestions to make the Voter Guide more comprehensive. Submit suggestions and concerns here.
