You can publicly endorse candidates on Facebook! (If you want.)

(WDTN) – With the election season rumbling at full speed toward Nov. 8, Facebook has quietly released a feature that allows you to endorse a candidate.

If your posts on the social media platform weren’t enough for your friends to know who you were voting for on election day.

To endorse a candidate for political office on Facebook:

  1. Select the Endorsement tab on the political figure’s Facebook Page
  2. Select Endorse
  3. Choose the audience you want to see your endorsement post
  4. Write something to go along with your post
  5. Select Post

Note that this will only work for candidates that have a page that is in the Politician, Political Candidate, or Government Official categories.

Remember that everyone will see it if you choose to leave the endorsement as public. That includes the candidate and possibly everyone that looks at the candidate’s page. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
