A New and Improved Quick Test to Help Narrow Down You Vote – Now with 100% more Buzzfeed Quizzes!

Without a doubt the question I hear most often from friends and family is “what Kim Kardashian quote should I put on my tombstone?”  The second most common question I hear happens whenever an election rolls around, “I wish there was a place I could compare where the parties stand on the issues.”  “Something as simple as a Buzzfeed quiz to tell me what percent Pheobe Buffay I am based on my actual buffet choices.”

Well mon petite fromage, there are actually several… hundred places to do that.  And that’s actually a major problem because there are tests that exist simply to convince you to vote a certain way.

There are a few good ones though.  By far the easiest to access and use though, is Vote Compass.  I laid out all of the reasons why I think it’s pretty good in a post I did for the 2019 Alberta election and those reasons all apply to the federal test as well (plus you can learn where the whole Buzzfeed Quizzes thing started).

A note of caution though.  You shouldn’t rely solely on something like this to tell you who to vote for.  It’s a great tool for helping narrow things down and for learning where the parties stand on major issues, but it’s far too simplistic to be your only guide.  We are complex people and not all issues are weighted the same.  Much like Buzzfeed quizzes.

The link to the site is below.  When you’re done, maybe take some time to determine what kind of sandwich you are.  I got peanut butter and mayonnaise.

I encourage you to comment with your thoughts.  I love to debate and clarify.  Before you engage though, please take a moment to review the FAQ and About TTC pages.
