    2016 Non-Partisan Michigan Voter Guide

    The Presidential guide includes biographical information, endorsements from prominent endorsing agencies and position statements on important topics such as national security, abortion, immigration, gun control, health care and economy. The position statements are taken directly from each candidate’s website or are transcripts from interviews. Michigan Family Forum has not changed any of the wording, though we have edited them for length. Biographical information and priorities are from a survey filled out by the candidates themselves. If the candidate chose not to participate, it is noted under their name. (Courtesy Michigan Family Forum - which solely responsible for the content)
