Candidate Match Quiz compares candidates' views to your own

Posted: Updated:

You can now take a quick quiz on NBC12's Facebook page and see which candidate is the best match for you.

When you click on the voter tools tab on the page, you'll be prompted to answer questions on 11 issues. They range from the economy to immigration, based on what voters are most interested in and what's most likely to come up in the next legislative session.

When you answer the questions and say how important that topic is for you, a non-political Project Vote Smart team checks which candidates' stance matches your own.

The app also helps you register to vote. Click that option and answer a few quick questions and they'll email you a voter registration form. Be sure to mail it in by Monday, which is the deadline here in Virginia.

You can also click voting in your state and get more information about polling places, voter ID issues and more.

The Candidate Match Quiz is part of a non-partisan educational effort by NBC Universal. The goal is to make sure we all have the tools needed to make an informed choice at the polls on November 6.
