Research the Presidential Candidates

October 23, 2012

Monday night was our last opportunity to see Barack Obama and Mitt Romney debate each other before the November 6th election. The pundits are having a great time telling us who won the debate and which one line zingers are going viral. They are also giving us the latest polling data about which candidate is ahead in the polls. While all of their information is interesting, it can be overwhelming. The library can help you sift through all the information coming your way. We have a new display with information about the candidates’ platforms, their official websites, and books written by and about the candidates. There are also online quizzes that can help you discover which candidate you side with most often on key issues. Two of these quizzes can be found at http://www.ontheissues.org/default.htm and http://www.isidewith.com/presidential-election-quiz. As always, the librarians want to encourage you to do your research and make a wise and informed decision.
