President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney have appeared side by side for three debates, and voters know much about these two candidates.
But many of us need more information about those running for other important offices — U.S. House and Senate and the state Legislature. Despite advertisements and direct mail, many voters may not be sure who will be on their local ballot.
Here’s help: Go to smartvoter.org and enter your address. You’ll get personalized information on candidates and issues — every candidate for federal and state office, as well as candidate issue statements gathered by League of Women Voters.
Smartvoter.org allows you to compare candidates’ answers, in their own words, so you can decide who best represents your values and ideas.
Voting brings us together as Americans — it is the one time we’re all equal. Election Day is your opportunity to support your community and have a say in America’s future. But before you head to the polls on Nov. 6, visit smartvoter.org and learn who will be on your ballot.
