How to Vote For the Right Candidate in an Election
- Be sure to check the reliability of the information such as commentators that you listen to and material that you read or use.
- Write important things down for further reference, it can come in handy when you start to doubt whether this candidate is really the one or if you should pick another
- Don't focus on one or two candidates, be sure to keep other options open.
- Be open to a qualified candidate for a particular job. If for example you are a Christian, it could be that a Buddhist/Muslim/Jewish/agnostic/atheist, etc. candidate might reflect your needs in some matters such as tax assessor or county commissioner (maintaining county roads, etc.)--this goes for other, nonreligious matters too, be sure to look at the facts, there is no "they and we" there's just "us" and we must work together to avoid anger and spite!
- Do not vote for someone because you like their looks or the way they talk. This is not leadership and especially has nothing to do with opinions or representing the people
- Do not be lead by fear. A candidate that has to win your vote by first scaring you with unfounded opinions and then making promises to protect you may be like a bully getting your lunch money for not beating you up.
- If someone comes up with good ideas to improve security and safety it's worth your consideration but: be lead by facts and plans--NOT by fear!
- Don't stress out. It's not necessary and it is bad for your heart. Just use your head and your voice together and everything will be alright.
- Be sure to understand politics and realize that the reliability of the information you receive depends on the source and why it is being used. Some stories may be made up--spun (twisted) or simply false--and posted on the internet.
- You must try to check the credibility (accuracy and truth) of political commentators and news. False stories on the internet may even be picked up, published and used by news channels or even by some candidates because it serves their purposes. So they repeat it until it is proved to be false, and then claim that, "We had checked it and were assured that it was correct."
