Our Endorsement Process
We begin in the late Fall before a Primary election to find out who has declared candidacy for key state and local elections. We have sometimes encouraged individuals to run for office.
We present all candidates with a lengthy questionnaire tailored to the office, current issues and our policy initiatives.
After reviewing candidate responses, we invite each applicant to meet with small groups of our knowledgeable senior members to explain their responses and why we should endorse them.
On occasion we will sponsor candidate forums to allow a larger audience to hear from the candidates directly.
After meeting all applicants for endorsement, our interviewer groups pool their notes, discuss what they have learned from the written and in-person responses and make a presentation to the Steering Committee.
The Steering Committee will then send endorsement recommendations via the internet to our members along with the materials submitted by the candidates.
The membership then votes on a slate
After tallying the vote, we inform the candidates and the public of our endorsement.
