California Voter Guide – 2022 Primary Races

How To Vote For, Not Against, Your Values
Ratings: Every candidate is considered after thorough research; we also have a questionnaire for candidates to complete.

Our highest ratings go to candidates who will defend freedom, stand for free enterprise, or have a conservative and/or biblical worldview based on their ability to stand firm against efforts to increase taxes, size of government, weaken law and order, and crush individual freedom. Here is our rating system: 

*****   The best candidate. Our strongest endorsement

****      Very good

***        Acceptable

**          Vote only to prevent worse candidate(s) from winning

*            Terrible. Do Not Vote. All your other votes will count
