How do I know how to vote in this election?

I usually do prayer and review the stance on each candidate and then decide which direction to vote. This presidential election, however, has me on the sidelines. While I don’t approve, agree or like many issues of each candidate, I am at a point that I don’t want to cast my vote as I disapprove of both candidates running. But to not vote also says I have no voice. In the end, I will have to chose the lesser of 2 evils. Does the Catholic church approve of any of the candidates. I also know that the church will not give advice on who to vote for, this election has me reading everything else, except election news. smh
