In the next few weeks, FCCB will launch the 2016 Candidate Questionnaire Project. This project assists Catholics and the broader community with the obligation to become informed voters. The questionnaire asks all U.S. Congressional and Florida legislative candidates on their positions regarding several issues of importance such as a candidates’ position on human life, dignity and the common good. All candidates appearing on the 2016 ballot will be invited to participate and qualifying ends June 24. Once a candidate returns his or her CQP, the FCCB will post responses on its website at http://flaccb.org/.
Taking the time to become familiar with the candidates’ positions on issues involving human life, dignity and the common good is essential to responsible, faithful citizenship.
