Looking for Reliable Election News and Resources in 2024? FRC Can Help
For those of us who love and appreciate America, its history, and the freedoms we enjoy, we look for educational materials to help equip us with the best research and messaging available to protect faith, family, and freedom. As Family Research Council’s (FRC) president, Tony Perkins, often says, “Our republic was made for participants, not spectators.” We want to strengthen our nation and, for those of us who are Christians that love God and our neighbors, we want to glorify God in the public sphere.
However, many people are overwhelmed with a barrage of news, ads, soundbites, and social media posts. They want clear direction, asking, “Who can I trust, where can I get reliable information, and what can I do?”
In addition, people are looking for trustworthy information during the election season about candidates and how they line up with their values and worldview. This is where FRC Action comes in. As a 501(c)(4) organization, FRCA is separate from the nonprofit Family Research Council.
The following is a listing of helpful resources divided into two sections — those provided by FRC and those provided by FRC Action.
Family Research Council Resources
Thankfully, FRC has experienced and knowledgeable staff who can equip the public with reliable, trustworthy information from Washington, D.C. from a biblical worldview. The following is a listing of the many resources that FRC offers.

State-Specific Voter Guides: Get sample ballots, voting information, candidate evaluations, and more.
Party Platform Comparison: It’s important to understand what each of the party’s platforms say because they serve as the guiding documents for the party. Studies have shown that parties vote in line with their platforms over 80% of the time. If you want to know what priorities a party will work to advance, look at its platform. See the difference for yourself and share with others!
