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

Project Vote Smart started the "VoteEasy" website after most candidates failed to respond to its survey. Project Vote Smart says less than 12 percent of Nebraska 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.

Nebraska voters can go to http://votesmart.org/voteeasy and click on 13 issue tabs, including abortion, Afghanistan, the economy and health care.

They can type in their own views to see how well a candidate's position matches their own.
