So, as most people know, this is an election year in the U.S.. Any person who is a citizen in the states and is registered to vote should most definitely vote. I’ve asked around and one answer I’ve received as a reason that someone would not vote is that they do not know who to vote for.
This makes sense, especially this year with so many candidates. But, it is not an excuse to avoid participating in a voting process that will affect lives around the world. Not every person has the time to follow every debate and every appearance and every article that discusses the candidates and what they ate for lunch. So there is the issue.
Because of this, I have found an easy way to match a person to a presidential candidate that they share interests with and therefore a candidate that they can consider voting for.
The site isidewith.com is a quick and easy way to find out what candidate supports your views the most. The site has information on each candidate and their policies along with sources. There is also basic information for different issues that are going on currently.
The process is easy – you answer different sets of questions according to different political areas and then the system matches you with candidates and shows you their answers compared to your answers. Pretty simple, right?
It’s important to know what is going on in the world around you so if you have ten minutes, you should take a look. That’s what nugget says.
