Candidate Endorsement Process

AMVOTE PAC endorsements are based upon an overall analysis of many factors, including (1) feedback from community members, (2) track record on minority issues, (3) qualifying record and/or history of candidate, and (4) community outreach efforts.

We also gather information on their positions from the internet, candidate websites and public debates. Unfortunately, we cannot evaluate candidates in every election, but rather select contests of importance to AMVOTE.

Requests for endorsements emanate from the candidates’ organization, as well as members of the AMVOTE Advisory Board, our friends and supporters from the Arab Muslim and Christian American Community, and our political consultants.

AMVOTE’S Endorsement Committee reviews selected, relevant elections and makes recommendations to our Executive Committee and our Board of Advisors who will discuss and choose our recommendations.

AMVOTE will then publish our selections through email blasts, website and social media. Endorsed candidates are encouraged to include our endorsements in their literature and/or “rent” our email lists thru an outside media firm at cost in order to target a geographic voter base (e.g. town, district, ward, subcircuit.)
