Of course its a good idea to have some published information to make a more informed judgment. I'm a member of several large scientific societies, and they always have something like that to help us decide in our elections. But the organization itself never actually endorses a particular candidate, I agree that would be wrong.
The best way is to have each candidate to provide a brief bio sketch, make a statement (limit the length to a certain number of characters), submit a photo, and then invite several supporting statements from other people (explicit signed endorsements) describing why they support that particular candidate...these people should be chosen by the candidate themselves. This should be published in Disc Golfer Magazine, for all the membership to read, well before the election occurs.
Anyways, it is nice to read the candidate statements, there are quite a few people who I'd like to vote for, with lots of energy and ideas being aired. I like that. You're right that the "voter's guide" bit is over-the-top (even providing a score sheet!), but I don't know that it will really influence anybody's vote in any particular direction. People will like the candidates they like for their own very personal reasons, and that will outweigh any other considerations.
