2014 October 27

Great Divide Ranch, MT—Today, Vote Smart released the results of the National Political Courage Test to VoteEasy at VoteSmart.org, giving Mississippi voters an invaluable resource for identifying their best political match November 4th. Three of the congressional candidates passed the 2014 Political Courage Test. 

Since 1992, the Test has measured each candidate’s willingness to answer the voter’s questions on vital issues. VoteEasy, an easy-to-use tool on Vote Smart’s new user-friendly website, uses the results of the test to help voters find their perfect match.
