We send a questionnaire to each candidate that focuses on their policy positions and leadership experience. Once we collect completed versions from the candidates, the questionnaires are shared with our community, who then have a chance to provide feedback and let us know what they think.
We send invites to our community to attend a live interview day, where candidates are asked a series of questions in front of our community members. Based on the candidates’ interviews, we collect feedback from our constituents in the room.
Based on the candidate questionnaires, candidate interviews, and feedback from our community, our Leadership Council votes on endorsements.
