Roundtable critical review of
all the presidential candidates’ websites
In today’s featured segment, John joins the Weymouth Three Musketeers (Deborah Brown, Alice Arena and Linda Broadford) to do a critical review of the campaign websites of the Democratic candidates running for president in 2020. The team looks at the websites from the point of view of activists looking to get involved with a campaign. During the discussion, we rate the websites in five different categories using a five point Likert scale. Our goal is to show you what the candidates are doing right and what they’re doing wrong so that you can build a better website for your campaign. This is part one in a two-part series that reviews all the candidates’ websites.
Categories for evaluating the presidential candidates’ websites:
Could you find the site using a search engine? Once you found the site what did you think?
Ease of use
Could you navigate around the site? Was site user friendly?
Does the site educate you about the candidate? Does the site tell you about the candidate’s stance on issues?
Call to action
If you want to support the candidate does the site provide you with a way to do that? How effective is the call to action?
If you wanted to pledge support, volunteer or have a follow-up question, does the website provide a method of doing this?
