Tonight, we get to see President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney side-by-side for the second time at 9 pm Eastern in a town hall style debate. Undecided voters will have the opportunity to ask the candidates questions on the issues they care about.
Even if we think we know all there is to know about the candidates at the top of the ticket, many of us still need more information about those running for other important offices like U.S. House and Senate or state legislature. Go to www.VOTE411.org and enter your address to get personalized information on candidates and issues. In addition to naming every candidate for federal and state office, hundreds of localities also feature detailed candidate issue statements gathered by state and local League volunteers across the country.
In these last three weeks before the election, excitement is building, and every vote is important. When we go to vote there will be more than just residency in the Oval Office on the line. It’s about our families and our communities from the top of the ticket all the way down to the local races. It’s about our jobs, environment and health care, and educating our youth.
VOTE411.org allows you to compare candidates’ answers, in their own words, so you can decide who will best represent your values and ideas if elected. Voting means you have an impact on these critical issues and the policies that will be implemented in the coming years.
Voting brings us together as Americans – it is the one time when we are all equal. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, young or old, liberal or conservative. Election Day is your opportunity to support your community and have a say in America’s future.
Use VOTE411.org’s to find out who’s on your ballot and review where the candidates stand on the issues that matter most to you. Then, set up your personalized voting guide that will include up-to-date information you need to cast your ballot, including your polling place, voting rules, and deadlines.
Please share this vital election resource with your friends and family, so that they, too, are prepared to vote, and join with your neighbors in voting in this election.
