Factors To Consider When Voting For A Politician.
The leaders we elect in office will determine whether the state of living will change or we’ll keep going through the same challenges we have been going through for the longest time. 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. The politician you choose must be planning to address the issues you feel should be addressed.
Do extensive research on all the candidates who are vying. Use the newspapers and online resources as this will help you know more about the candidate. Campaign speeches and reports, press reports and campaign literature can help you know more about the candidates who are vying. 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. Know the endorsers for your candidate. Different organizations have various values, and when they endorse a candidate, it is mostly to their benefit in the long run. By knowing their value, you can judge your candidates values. Find out how your candidates are funding their campaign. How your candidate got funding for their campaign will determine their character in office. An example of a candidate who is rumored to have connections to shell companies is Adil Baguirov who stepped down from a school board, a month after his election.
look out for subtle signs when choosing your candidate. Despite mastering the art of seeming perfect, if you are keen, you will see the fault in them. Beware of name calling. It is a sign of incompetence if one candidate attacks another based on things that will not affect their performance in office.
Some candidates try to make their opponents look guilty by association. Candidates who whine about their opponents major funds are most likely going to keep whining even when in office. Accepting responsibility for one’s actions is a sign of a good leader. Candidates who pass blame when asked about their actions are not good leader. To win votes, politicians promise better things to their voters. 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.
