How do you decide who to vote for?

When I first voted at the age of 18 I did some quick research and voted for one party the entire ballot. Now that I have more maturity I research all canidates and vote each as an individual with no regard for which side they stand with. Usualy though this follows with the party I voted for. I watch the news and debates and make my decisions. How do you approach the voting process?

If they've held an office before, I look at how they've voted on issues that are important to me. I also look at news, debates, and such. Honestly, I don't consider myself loyal to any one party, but I tend to wind up voting for Democrats because they tend to be closer to my own views. I have a few specific issues that are very important to me that I always consider, because they are things that affect or have affected my life or the lives of people I love. So I am very careful in voting for people I agree with on those things.
