  • How Non-partisan Political Information Assists People Learn The Issues Without Biases

    Well-being, Industrial Design

    When two people vying for an elective office campaign against each other, there is the likelihood that a lot of misinformation will be espoused during the course of the election cycle. This is an activity that many people will do intentionally in hopes of swaying voters to form an opinion that will help them win an elective office. The "facts" on an issue that is presented is usually suspect and it can be hard to discern the truth about the people trying to win the election. One way to address the misinformation is to obtain non-partisan political information that is concerned with reporting on the issues and candidates without concerning itself with who wins an election.

    One aspect that can disappoint many voters is how some candidates will change positions on an issue. The person running for office may have made statements supporting a position. However, they may later change that position when they come under scrutiny from the leaders of their political party, or because it did not resonate well with the public. This can leave a voter wondering what the person really believes and how they will act when they have to vote on things.

    Rivals are also known to say things about an opponent that might not be true. They do this with the intention of swaying voters who are concerned that whatever they believe in might be endangered by the opponent winning the elective office. Whether or not the opponent actually feels the way the rival is portraying them to feel is often irrelevant.

    Then one has to add in the effect special interests group can have on the misinformation. Some of these organizations are more concerned with furthering their agenda than they are in making sure good people are elected to an office. They will support or attack a candidate based only on how each person views their cause.

    The special interests groups might issue statements and create advertisements that portray one candidate as being more qualified to lead than other. This might not be true, but that is normally not their concern. The end result is that an average voter can have a hard time figuring out what to believe.

    There are voters who simply want to know the facts on a given topic so they can form their own opinion. These voters are not really interested in listening to propaganda that stretches the truth or misrepresents the candidates running for office. They can look at how office holders have voted in the past to learn how they will probably vote on issues in the future.

    Many of these voters will turn to sources that try to supply the information they seek. These sources should not be swayed by biases found in other news agencies. They should state what is going on and how candidates have taken a position on each subject.

    A lot of misinformation is generated during an election year. People will say and do a lot of things in order to get elected to a governmental position. Using non-partisan political information can help a voter determine if what a candidate is saying is the truth or not.
