Voter Guide includes top questions to ask candidates, fact sheets on key issues, and side-by-side comparison of Obama and Romney
Northampton, Mass.- National Priorities Project (NPP) announces the release of Election 2012: The Voter Guide, a suite of materials to help voters cut through political spin and get the facts on what's at stake in 2012.


The Voter Guide includes the top six questions to ask candidates, plus one-page fact sheets on this year's most pressing issues--from health care and education to taxes and federal spending. NPP's Voter Guide also includes a side-by-side comparison of President Obama and Governor Romney in 12 key areas, including job creation, tax loopholes, and Medicare.

"This Voter Guide is an essential resource for all Americans seeking an in-depth and non-partisan source of information," said NPP's Executive Director, Jo Comerford. "It's crucial that voters have the facts they need to make informed choices. In eight weeks
Americans will head to the polls to choose this nation's path for years to come--and every voter should have access to clear and unbiased information about what's at stake."

Earlier this year NPP released  A People's Guide to the Federal Budget (Interlink Books), a comprehensive and plain-language guide to federal spending, taxes, and how decisions made in Washington affect the life of every American. Today's release of Election 2012: The Voter Guide provides yet another invaluable resource for Americans who have no prior background in the federal budget or the inside-Washington game.
