Election Tuesday!

Tuesday, November 6, 2012 is:
Election Day!!!

Alright, Tim here, and since it is my area of expertise (because I am a political science major), we are going to talk a little bit about VOTING!!!
Here are the presidential candidates:
Left: Barack Obama Right: Mitt Romney
And these are the vice presidential candidates: 

Left: Joe Biden Right: Paul Ryan

Time for a quick Q & A:
Q: Okay cool, but where do I vote and how do I know if I am even registered???
A: Well, here is a handy dandy website that can solve those complicated questions. Just type in your information and you’ll be good to go (hopefully). 
Heres the link: http://www.canivote.org/

Q: Why should I even vote? Isn’t it a total waste of time? 

A: Because it is one of the most sacred public duties there are! The United States is thankfully a democracy, which simply means, the powers of change are in the peoples hands. You can fulfill your role of public duty by casting a vote. This is your chance to shine!

Q: I don’t even know anything about the candidates, how do I learn more about them?
A: Well, I’ll post both candidates websites, here we go:
Mitt:  http://www.mittromney.com/
Obama: http://www.barackobama.com/
Q: Is there an easy way to find out about their stances on information that is relevant to me? I am so confused!!!!!! 

A: Sure is!! The website I like to use is called: http://www.ontheissues.org/Issues.htm
Although it does not have the lovely html and fancy pants as the candidates personal websites. This website talks about the real deal. No tomfoolery, no run-arounds, just facts and direct quotes. It also historically outlines each issue in case of you are confused about it. This is real good stuff. 

Well I hope you guys found some of this information relevant and useful. Have a happy election Tuesday everyone and don’t forget to cast your vote!

Keep it TRU,
