CFA Foundation does not speak for any candidate who has not answered the Voters' Guide survey. However, in some cases, information relating to a candidate's position on an issue is publicly available. This information may include a candidate's voting records, public statements, campaign materials, or other credible sources. Based on this publicly available information, some positions for candidates who did not respond have been determined after extensive research and are represented with "S" (Supports based on citations) or "O" (Opposes based on citations), with a link (or links) to the source of the public statement(s) at If it is unknown where a candidate stands on a given issue, the answer has been intentionally left blank. If it is unclear where a candidate stands on a given issue after research, the candidate's position is represented with "N" (Not clear), with a link (or links) to relevant source material.
