With the end of the presidential debates and Nov. 4 just around the corner, are you ready to vote?
If you’re planning to vote in San Antonio, be sure to check out the Bexar county election site, where you can verify that you’re registered, see a list of early voting locations, and preview a sample ballot. Voting outside of San Antonio? Navigate through the Texas Secretary of State’s election site and USA.gov.
Still undecided about which presidential candidate to support? Start with the issues that matter most to you, and try TPR’s “Select a Candidate” quiz. By selecting your view on a series of topics, the survey helps to determine the candidate whose positions are most compatible with your leanings. Perhaps even more useful, the results page outlines each candidate’s position on specific issues, including Iraq and Afghanistan, immigration, and education.
Puzzled by a candidate’s claims during the debate or skeptical about a media pundit’s commentary? Factcheck.org, a non-partisan, nonprofit consumer advocate for voters, aims to decrease confusion and deception in US politics by educating readers on the issues.
A similar nonpartisan guide, OpenSecrets.org, focuses on the role of money in U.S. elections and public policy.
