A nonpartisan group has launched a website to help Indiana voters determine where candidates stand on the issues, even if the candidates didn't answer its pre-election survey.

Montana-based Project Vote Smart started the "VoteEasy" website after most candidates failed to respond to its survey. Project Vote Smart says only 44 percent of Indiana candidates responded.

The website analyzes voting records and public statements to infer where an incumbent or candidate stands on a wide range of policy issues.

Voters click on 12 issue tabs, including abortion, Afghanistan, the economy and taxes, and can type in their own views to see how well a candidate's position matches their own.
