Questions for Candidates
In Catholic teaching, the laity has the primary responsibility in political affairs. That means it is your responsibility to find out where the candidates stand on the issues. It is also your responsibility to make sure the candidates take a stand on the issues.

Don't let the campaigns, newspapers, and special interest groups determine the issues. In North Dakota, most candidates still go door to door and make community appearances. Don't pass up any opportunity to ask the candidates where they stand on the important moral and social justice issues of the day.

The questions listed here can help Catholics make moral and prudential decisions about candidates and public policies. Please use this when contacting candidates. Some issues are more important than others. Some concern policies, like attacks on human life, that a Catholic can never support. Catholics can legitimately disagree about how to address some other issues. All the issues, however, deserve our attention.
