How are top planks determined?

Top planks are unique to each specific political position.  We collect the respective rankings from each candidate running for a position and then calculate which planks are the most important to all the candidates.  This way, candidates will see which planks they likely need to address.  Voters will see this same ranking when comparing candidates within “Meet Your Candidates”.

Note: Each candidate’s individual planks and rankings will be shown in their public profile.  This enables each candidate to represent what is most important to them, while also making sure they are addressing the issues important to their competition.
