The Missouri Women's Political Caucus

2018 Candidate Endorsement Questionnaire


The Missouri Women’s Political Caucus (MWPC) is a multi-partisan organization dedicated to the election and appointment of qualified women to public office. In pursuing our mission, we seek to identify, support and/or endorse women who are running for statewide elected office.  We also may make recommendations to the National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) for women running for federal office.

MWPC’s Candidate Endorsement Committee uses this questionnaire to make decisions about our endorsement of candidates and also to recommend candidates for National endorsement.  Our endorsement is based on your responses to the questions below.  Use the comments section to elaborate on your “other” answers or if you need more space.

Please fill out the form below, print it out and mail it in as well as clicking "Submit" below.
