When you’ve completed the interview on Alignvote, you’ll get a result list of candidates in the race, sorted by how much they agree with you.

You can now click the “Show Detail” button, and it will show you, issue by issue, whether the candidate is in alignment with you (thumbs-up) or not aligned with you (thumbs down):

Example — for each candidate, you’ll see where you agree and disagree

We hope this new level of transparency helps voters see more clearly why some candidates rank higher than others.

Note that your weighting influences the “cost” of a “misalignment”. That is, by default, everything is neutral (50 points.) If an issue is unimportant to you, drag the weighting slider to 0 and a “miss” or a “match” won’t influence the alignment score. If the issue is more important than average to you, drag the slider to the right.

With the new “share your session” permalink feature released yesterday, you can share these links on social media and others will be able to see the detail of where each candidate stands on the issues in the survey.
