Did you ever wish there was an impartial way to get the information about the up coming elections?  Well since 1920 there has been and thanks to the League Of Women Voters internet you can peruse the stats, votes and questions at your leisure.

So who are these angels of the plain facts? Well this is what their webpage says:

The League of Women Voters is a citizens' organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage our communities in the decisions that impact our lives. The League operates at national, state, and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues in all 50 states, as well DC, the Virgin Islands, and Hong Kong.

Personally I find the mud slinging and negative adds not only not helpful but aosl very confusing. And not that I am the brightest bulb on the planet but I generally use their information about the candidates and questions to at least have a base knowledge on the people and things I will be asked to have an opinion on in November.

In their Easy To Use Voters Guide they cover everything from where and how a person takes part in the process.  How to vote absentee and the explanation of Rank Choice Voting.  And then and to me most important information about the candidates, what their parties actually stand for and voting, support records if they have any and then the up coming bond issues.

It isn't everything but for me it is a good place to start.
