About This Quiz

Voting is a right that was fought for and it's one that should be appreciated and used. No matter who you're voting for, no matter what anyone else out there tells you, use your voice and vote. Sometimes it can be hard to know who to vote for, though. Do you go party line or go with your gut? Sometimes they are the same, but sometimes they couldn't be more different. In a world like the one we live in now, putting your vote to good use is as important as ever. Basically, writing in  "Harambe" won't get us anywhere. Not only is Harambe dead, he was a gorilla. 

Anyway, voting can be made much easier when you know where you fall on the political spectrum. While you don't have to vote with the party you identify with, it can give you a really good place to start. Some people know right away, some people take a while to decide, and some people switch back and forth a few times. What do you identify more as? With carefully constructed questions, we will be able to guess if you call yourself more a Democrat, Republican, independent, or something else. Take the quiz now!
