Our leaders have the power to impact change or whether the state of living will remain the same. Most of the promises politicians make are often unfulfilled when they get to the office. Enough emphasis cannot be put on the importance of choosing credible leaders.
Whether or not a leader plans to address a voter’s issue will determine whether the voter will vote for them or not. Listen to the politicians’ statements and ensure that the issues you need to be addressed are what they plan on addressing.
Do intensive research on the candidates who are running. You can get to know more about the candidates from newspapers and online sources. Gather as much material as you can on the candidates by listening to their campaign speeches and debates, press reports and campaign literature. Leaders are tasked with the responsibility of handling sensitive issues that affect the community and knowing what their stand on such issues is will help you know how to address them properly.
Find out other people’s opinion of your preferred candidate. do not just ask them if they are for or against your candidate but also try to find out their reasons for their decision. it is important to know who is endorsing your candidate. When an organization endorses a candidate, it is to their benefit in the long run. By knowing their value, you can judge your candidates values. Find out how your candidates are funding their campaign. How your candidate got funding for their campaign will determine their character in office. Adil Baguirov Dayton is an example of someone who was claimed to have dealings with a shell company that funded his campaign.
There are tell-tale signs you need to be on the lookout for when you are choosing your preferred candidate. Despite mastering the art of seeming perfect, if you are keen, you will see the fault in them. Name calling is one of the things you should look out for. Beware of candidates who attack their opponents based on characteristics that will not affect their performance in office.
The guilty by association card is a stunt that candidates pull against their opponents. A candidate who whines during competition and complains about their lack of delivery being caused by opponents major funds will whine even while in office. Accepting responsibility for one’s actions is a sign of a good leader. Candidates who pass blame when asked about their actions are not good leader. By promising better things to voters, politicians are able to win people’s heart. When a politician’s promise is too good to be true, think twice. Take time to weigh a politician’s rights and wrongs before voting.
