Voter’s Guide/Candidate Information for Chester County Races

Consolidated List of Candidates with “Common Ground” Rating

Federal Races – Candidate Info.

State Races – Candidate Info.


PA Senator (Not sure of your district?  You can find that here!)

PA Representative (Not sure of your district?  You can find that here!)

How the ratings were calculated:

The “common ground” rating is calculated based on candidate alignment with six positions held by a majority of those who do, and do not, own guns (data from non-partisan polls.)

An “A” rating indicates the candidate supports all six “common ground” positions. A “B” rating indicates the candidate supports five of six positions. “No Rating” means the candidate did not return our candidate information request, despite repeated contacts.

Here are the common ground issues:

  1. A background check for every gun purchase
  2. Minimum age for gun purchase 21
  3. Ban “bump stocks”
  4. Enact Emergency Risk Protection Order legislation
  5. Don’t arm teachers
  6. Require permit for gun concealed carry
