Vote Easy - Get to Know the Candidates

Vote Easy is a site designed to help you and your students get to know the candidates.  Making an informed decision about which candidate to vote for can be tough.  Enter your zip code into Vote Easy and you will be presented with the candidates who are running for national seats this November.  Clicking on their pictures gives you insight on the candidates, their backgrounds, and points-of-view.  Answering questions about the hot-button issues listed across the top of the screen will show you how the candidates' views align with your personal opinions.  If desired, you can even enter your email address to be reminded to re-visit the site a week before the election, so you can re-familiarize yourself with the candidates and their views prior to your visit to the polls.

This would be a great tool to use with a Social Studies, Civics, Government or Current Events class, as well as a supporting activity for a Mock Election.
