How to use this guide

comparing two candidates

Research candidates’ views,
donors, and endorsements

Dang near everything on this site is a link. We’ve collected links to regional questionnaires, interviews, forums, and written endorsements, plus donor data for all Washington State PDC candidates. (We’ll get FEC data next time around.) You can compare side by side or look at each candidate and see their donor details. You can drill all the way down to the candidate’s PDC filing.

compare all candidates

Quickly compare candidate
leanings on top issues

Our A/B questionnaire is based on top issues identified over recent years by the public and candidates themselves. Our process is imperfect, but it’s intended to be nonpartisan and impartial while mirroring the messiness of being an elected official and a voter, where nearly all decisions are choices between two options you didn’t come up with. Read more about our approach.

additional comments from candidates

Click candidates‘ faces for
their additional comments

We painstakingly worked to encourage all candidates to participate. Our process is rigorous and some chose not to.

We have done our best to speculate on the positions of candidates who did not answer to the best of our ability based on comments, traditional party positions, publicly available information, and input from engaged citizens.
