Try the faith barometer

All six state Supreme Court candidates answered our questions posted on our website and received various levels of recommendations. Sue Lani Madsen pointed out in her Oct. 1 column that about 20 percent of voters fail to vote for judges or other non-partisan candidates. Possibly because they don’t know enough about them?

WeBelieveWeVote has vetted all the candidates for contested offices and offers insights and recommendations based on a standard defined by the Constitution and godly principles of good governance. No excuse to skip a race out of ignorance.

The Supreme Court incumbents have handed down controversial decisions recently dealing with Second Amendment rights, teacher unions, property rights, charter schools and school funding. Perhaps fresh minds from districts outside King County would help restore balance.

All of the statewide and local candidates from Spokane, Stevens, Benton and Franklin counties have been evaluated and/or rated. There is a chart comparing endorsements and donations. Additionally, recommendations on the ballot measures are offered from a perspective of less government, more personal liberty, greater economic freedom.

People in the faith community who share our perspective on better leadership can vote with confidence that their voice will count with this voter resource.
