WHAT THE CANDIDATE SAYS
You may hear a candidate talk. If you meet a candidate, listen for his or her ideas. You need to know if you agree with the ideas.
Candidates should not just try to make you mad at the other candidates. They should tell you why their own ideas are better.
Candidates should not try to make you feel sorry for them either. Don't let them get away with that. Make sure they explain their ideas.
Do the candidates tell what good things they plan to do? Or do they just put their opponents down? Always listen for the ideas.
What does a candidate promise to do? Does he promise everything to everybody? Does she promise too many things? Can the candidate really do what he or she says?
Listen to a candidate on radio or TV or in person. Tell which candidate you heard.
