Wondering where you fit in the political landscape? Vote Compass is here for the 2016 provincial election in Saskatchewan.

Vote Compass' objective is to promote electoral literacy and public participation during election campaigns.

The citizen engagement tool, which was designed by political scientists, prompts you to answer questions on everything from health care and education to environmental regulations. It renders a real-time assessment of how your positions on the issues compare with the policies of Saskatchewan's political parties.

The party positions were found by way of a comprehensive review of the public statements made by party officials. All of the parties were consulted and invited to review the findings and provide feedback.

Results are not intended and should not be interpreted as voting advice, nor as a prediction as to which party a given user intends to vote for. It is rather an entry point into a discussion of party positions on a suite of issues relevant to the election.

Vote Compass was developed by Vox Pop Labs, an independent, non-partisan group of social researchers and data scientists. Neither Vote Compass nor Vox Pop Labs are affiliated with any political organization or interest group.

The provincial election is on April 4.
