There’s a downward trend in the number of political candidates willing to answer questions about their stances on key issues. That’s according to “Project Vote Smart” - a nonpartisan voter education organization that is trying to help people across the country choose among candidates in this fall’s election. The group just launched its new “vote easy” website where voters can compare candidates’ views with their own.
Only 42 percent of Colorado's congressional candidates responded to the group's questionnaire on issues such as taxes, the economy, and health care. Colorado Public Radio's Anna Panoka spoke with Project Vote Smart senior adviser Adelaide Kimball about why that number has been declining in recent years.
