CEEP Candidate Guide Examples
"CEEP has been creating our nonpartisan guides since 2012, when schools asked for a clear and concise resource to sort through conflicting candidate claims and current issues. We do extensive research, taking account of salient votes and public statements by all the candidates we cover, not just how they spin their positions on their websites, and then fact-check all answers until we’re certain we’re getting it right. They’re vetted by a team including a former 19-year senior editor at Encyclopaedia Britannica."
