Interactive Resources

With so much information out there, and with most of it contradictory and confusing, we know it can be hard (and a little overwhelming) to figure out where to even begin to explore your own political identity.

Below are some quizzes to help you get a taste of where to begin your journey. Please know that we do not believe that these online tools are perfect, nor do we think you should take the results as completely accurate. These tools are best used to help you figure out where your journey begins, not to define you forever.

Please know that this should only be used as a first step to determine who you more closely align with. Do not take the results as gospel!
