2016 General Election (no Presidential Talk)
I am not going to be in my district or even in NY on election day so I received an absentee ballot. Obviously most of the coverage of November's election is in the presidential election so information gathering for those candidates is relatively easy. But other seats in your particular state, county, &/or district may not be too formal to you. And considering the proximity of local government to the federal government, it is more crucial to be informed about these candidates. Are you so involved in your county that you know what the candidates are about? Are there local debates in your local? Is there enough literature when you google names you feel informed about each candidate? Do you just stay in party lines? I guess my question is, how do you guys handle voting not dealing with the president, senate or house?
