Wahlprüfsteine are a set of questions (usually very specific questions) that are sent to parties which participate in elections. The answers are usually released in a compiled form before the election date. Among the Wahlprüfsteine's advantages are the compatibility with non-partisanship. The organisation asking the question can refrain from commenting them or refrain from making any kind of endorsement for a particular candidate or party while at the same time offering the public a service to inform them about differences in specific policy topics.
