The best way to figure out who to vote for is to do your research. Sound boring or too difficult? Let us help!
1. Get to know your candidates - take a look at candidates' websites, social media, and interviews. Look at voter guides for your area from your state's election website.
2. Learn about things you actually care about - if there's an issue near and dear to your heart, try looking for information about that issue. Many non-profits and issue-specific organizations issue voting guides. You can also join on-campus clubs to learn more about current issues and candidates.
3. Watch the debates - look up your local TV listings for primary debates. Many are also streamed online--check back with this guide for links throughout the year!
5. Talk about it - of course it's important to form your own opinion, but your friends, professors, and families can be helpful resources to learn more about candidates, communities, or politics in general.
