It’s that time of year again–Time to get out and vote.
To assist you in choosing which candidates and issues to vote for, we have compiled a list of informative websites. These are not the only websites available to you; they are simply a small sampling of what is out there. Be advised that they are not endorsed by the Virginia Public Library and that we have not read everything that is contained within them. You are using them at your own risk.
A good source of Presidential election information is NewsBank, a database brought to you by your library. Simply use your library card to log in and explore the Special Reports column on the left side of the screen.
For information on Minnesota legislative races, take a look at the Politics in Minnesota website:
The League of Women Voters has put together a website with general election information. It can be searched by state and includes such information as how to register and where to go to vote.
You can also learn where you should go to place your vote and how to register to vote at the website of the Minnesota Secretary of State. Additionally, this site has information on what issues and which candidates are to be voted on in your area.
Minnesota Public Radio has a series of questions to help voters see which candidates are more similar to their own beliefs.
Project Vote Smart is a non-partisan, primarily volunteer, organization that presents the candidates. The website includes, among other things, a brief resume with biographical information and the candidate’s voting record and position on issues.
