The Oregon Abigail Adams Project sends candidates a short questionnaire that they complete and submit on-line. Candidate answers are featured in a candidate comparison guide without the filter of political party. Candidates Guides can be published for all elections from the President of the United States to the local school boards.
The Abigail Adams Project is named after the wife of John Adams, second president of the United States. The letters that they exchanged gave us a window into their relationship and their incredible spirit. Abigail was a strong woman and great thinker. Her words supported and influenced John as he so frequently served far and away in his patriotic duties.
She was a patriot in her own right and is still an inspiration today. The Abigail Adams Project wishes to carry on her spirit in helping to build a nation, through educating voters.
“The Abigail Adams Project will truly revolutionize the electoral process. No longer will candidates need a treasure chest of money or be affiliated with a party to be considered a “viable” candidate. Americans will have the power of information in their own hands. They will know all the candidates running—and where they stand on the issues that matter to you. But what you will not find in these voters guides are Parties. We won’t list them because it won’t matter anymore. You will know the candidates and where they stand. Their race, gender, and party are irrelevant.” –Kimberly Fletcher, Abigail Adams Project Founder
