Before each election FamilyVoice Australia sends candidates a questionnaire with ten statements on family-related issues. Candidates are invited to express their agreement or otherwise with each statement on the scale: Yes definitely, Probably, Unsure, Unlikely, Definitely not, or No comment.
FamilyVoice survey scoring rewards openness and honesty. Failure to acknowledge the survey scores zero. A response to the survey is scored separately for each question: full agreement (Yes Definitely) scores 10, Probably = 7, Unsure = 5, Unlikely = 3, total opposition (Definitely Not) = 2 and No Comment = 1. The total score for all 10 questions thus ranges from 0 to 100.
