RTLACO Endorsement Criteria

  • Candidates for office can earn an RTLACO endorsement by the satisfactory completion of our on-line survey. For those who already hold public office and/or who have taken public positions on life issues, we also take that information into account. We offer a separate survey for judicial positions, given their unique criteria.

  • Candidates must be in fundamental agreement with the positions stated in our RTLACO Policy Document [CLICK HERE] to earn our endorsement.

  • We are working now to update the online survey used in the 2022 elections.

  • We realize that many candidates may not be intimately familiar with all life issues. We are always ready to discuss our endorsement procedures and explain our stance on life issues with potential candidates.
