What To Consider When Voting For A Politician.
Our leaders have the power to impact change or whether the state of living will remain the same. Most of the promises politicians make are often unfulfilled when they get to the office. The importance of choosing credible leader cannot be emphasized enough.
Whether or not a leader plans to address a voter’s issue will determine whether the voter will vote for them or not. Take time to listen to each leaders campaign strategy and then see if they are going to address what you consider to be a matter of concern.
Find out as much as you can about the candidates vying. Use the newspapers and online resources as this will help you know more about the candidate. Gather as much material as you can on the candidates by listening to their campaign speeches and debates, press reports and campaign literature. Leaders are tasked with the responsibility of handling sensitive issues that affect the community and knowing what their stand on such issues is will help you know how to address them properly.
Find out other people’s opinion of your preferred candidate. Find out their reasons for being for or against your candidate. Find out who are endorsing your candidate. When an organization endorses a candidate, it is to their benefit in the long run. you can judge your candidate values by knowing their endorsers’ values. Know the source of funding for your candidates’ campaign. your candidate’s conduct in office will be determined by how they got money for their campaign. A good example would have to be Adil Baguirov who had to step down from school board after he changed his voter’s address although there are rumors that he had ties to shell companies.
When choosing your preferred candidate, there are tell-tale signs you need to look out for. With a keen eye, it is possible to see the faults in our politicians no matter how hard they try to look perfect. Name calling is one of the things you should look out for. It is a sign of incompetence if one candidate attacks another based on things that will not affect their performance in office.
The guilty by association card is a stunt that candidates pull against their opponents. A candidate who whines during competition and complains about their lack of delivery being caused by opponents major funds will whine even while in office. A good leader should accept responsibility of their actions. It is not a good sign if a candidate passes blame when asked about their actions. Politicians try to win votes by making promises of better things. Think twice when a politician’s promises are too good to be true. Have enough time to weigh a politician’s pros and cons before making a decision.
