New Interactive quiz on WJXT4TheLocalStation's Facebook page can help you decide which candidate most matches your views on the issues.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Channel 4 has a new way to help you make your decision in some of the races you'll see on the ballot this fall, with the "Who Gets Your Vote?" app on Facebook.

Once you go to the WJXT4 The Local Station Facebook page, you will see a button at the top for "Who Gets Your Vote?" In order to use the app, you must first be a fan of the page.

After clicking the "Start Now" button, you will see options for various races, including the presidential race. Local congressional races will be added in the coming weeks. After choosing a race, you will see a set of issues. Choose your view on each issue -- Support, Oppose, Neutral or Don't Know -- then click the "View Results" button at the bottom. For the quiz to work properly, you should make a selection for every issue.

The quiz will then calculate which candidate best matches your views, and tell you how well other candidates match your views. You can share the results on your Facebook profile by clicking the "Share Result" button, which will also give your Facebook friends a chance to click a link to take the quiz.

For more information on a candidate, click the "Learn More" button, which will take you to their profile in the Election 2012 section of News4Jax.com.

Information in the quiz is based on the candidate's answers to a questionnaire provided by Channel 4 and News4Jax.com. In cases where a candidate did not respond, information was gathered from the candidate's website and other sources.
