Each election cycle, the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops conducts the Candidate Questionnaire Project to assist Catholics and the broader community with the obligation to be informed voters. Being familiar with candidates’ positions on issues involving human life, dignity and the common good is essential to responsible, faithful citizenship.
Each insert is two pages (or front and back) and customized for the Diocese of Orlando- with Congressional candidate responses on one side and State Legislative candidate responses on the other. Candidates were also offered the opportunity to submit comments on each question that will appear online only.
We encourage placement of the inserts within your bulletins. Materials prepared as part of the Candidate Questionnaire Project are approved by the bishops of Florida for use in parish bulletins or diocesan publications. Early voting for most Florida counties begins August 4. We recommend inserts are placed in bulletins on the weekend of July 28/29. If this weekend cannot be accommodated, any other weekend prior to the August 14 primary election is appropriate.
In addition, sample bulletin announcements are available that direct parishioners to candidate responses on our website. They can also be found on the Diocese of Orlando Bulletin Announcements page.
Thank you! Have a blessed Friday and wonderful weekend.
