Elected officials and candidates on Facebook can add their positions on key issues in the Issues section of their Page. Adding positions on issues gives elected officials or candidates an opportunity to connect with people who are looking to learn more about how they will be represented on the issues they care about.
How it works:
- Choose from 20 issue areas. Only the issues you add positions for will be visible on your Page. If you need to, you can add a custom issue.
- If you have a broad goal for an issue area, you can add your vision for it at the top of the page.
- Create as many custom topics as you like within an issue area, and add your position for each topic in 200 characters or less, in a video that is 30 seconds or less, or both.
If you're running for office, you can choose public endorsements to feature on your politician Page to help potential voters know why you should be elected. Endorsements show voters that you're a vetted, credible candidate and can increase your name recognition with the people who'll be casting a ballot.
