The Scoop


Want to play the match game with politicians?

VoteEasy is a fun, easy way to see how your beliefs match up with the people who are on the Nov. 2 ballot.

I actually giggled as I clicked on my beliefs and the little campaign signs moved closer and farther away, depending on each answer.

To check out Project Vote Smart's VoteEasy, go to, click on the grassy patch shaped like the state where you live, and then type in your ZIP code.

As you answer in each category, the signs shift backward and forward. Once you give enough answers to be a "match" with a candidate, he or she gets a little stamp that says "House Best Match" or whatever.

If you disagree enough on later items, the stamp will go away.
