The ACA has completed its 2008 Voters’ Guide project this week. The Voters’ Guide is meant to provide information to voters in Texas from state and national candidates on issues that atheists care about. We posed 23 statements to 482 candidates and asked their level of agreement or disagreement with the statements. We got 50 responses, which is better than we expected.
Here are some related links:
- Our press release on the guide (a good introduction). This was sent out Wednesday.
- The main Web page (if you forward a link, use this one).
- The questions (my favorite is #3 concerning conflict of interest).
- The results (there are a handful of different formats).
Our press release has caused a little buzz already:
- The Dallas Morning News religion blog
- A religion blog of a retired law professor and church-state separation advocate
- A blog asking whether atheism is a religion (added 10/18)
We would appreciate help in spreading the word about this resource–especially to people in Texas. The questions should be of interest to many people besides just atheists. Also, if people see additional links about the effort, I’d appreciate knowing about them.
If you have any feedback on the effort, that would be helpful, too, though it’s too late to change most things. We will likely attempt this again in future elections.
