Each election cycle, the FCCB conducts the Candidate Questionnaire Project (CQP) to assist Catholics and the broader community with the obligation to become informed voters. Knowing where the candidates stand on matters concerning human life and dignity and the advancement of the common good is essential to responsible faithful citizenship.
In early July, all U.S. Congressional, Florida legislative and Florida gubernatorial candidates appearing on the ballot in the Primary and/or General Elections were invited to participate in a questionnaire. Candidates were asked to identify whether they support or oppose a range of issues that are important to our faith community. Although the questionnaires do not address every area of concern, care has been taken to identify those issues likely to be acted on by lawmakers during the coming term. In addition to their positions on the issues, candidates will be given the opportunity to include brief comments on each question.
