The Current’s virtual voter guide 

Your devoted weekly muckraker doesn’t endorse political candidates, forcing you to do the thinking for yourself, and leaving us unbeholden and unencumbered by buyer’s remorse when it comes time to criticize our elected reps. We do, however, provide you with this handy guide to recent, salient reporting on key competitive races and issues — all available and linked online at — and a list of (mostly) non-partisan organizations that publish guides based on voting records and issue surveys.
