Understanding party positions are important for political engagement. Parties can help you to think about which party might be best aligned with your values and interests. Better understanding party positions can help you choose who to vote for or if you want to become a party member. You can check out party positions in their platforms; issued during elections, platforms outline priorities and plans for government.
