(TNS) — With the general election drawing near, we need to decide who to vote for president. If you’re having trouble choosing a candidate in this fascinating and entertaining race, fear not, Tinder will find you the perfect match.

With help from Rock the Vote, a non-profit organization in the U.S. that encourages the youth to get involved and vote, Tinder users can now swipe left or right on a 10-question policy-based survey that covers a variety of hot political issues, according to The Verge. The goal is to match users with the presidential candidate that most lines up with your views.

Some of the hot topics include same-sex marriage and drilling for oil and gas. If you don’t feel like you have enough information on the topic, users can tap on the questions and the app will provide more data on the issue itself.

After finishing the survey, the user will be matched with a candidate they'd be most happy with.

Well maybe not happy, but at lease content with.
