November 8th, the United States of America will be voting for the next president, as well as a few other races. The ballot, on November 8th, will be slightly different in each State of the country, and even many of the cities throughout the country. Google has already put out information about ballots for every section of the United States, where you can search to see what you'd be voting for. Now Facebook is doing something similar with their Voting Guide.

Not only is the Voting Guide showing what races you'll be voting on, but it also shows where the candidates stand on the issues, in case you haven't been paying attention to the political races in the past few months. You'll also be able to see the endorsements that the candidate has received, and there is a shortcut to their recent posts on Facebook and their website. Effectively giving you all of the details you may need, to make an informed decision about who will get your vote. You can favorite the candidates you plan to vote for, and what's even better is the fact that you can keep that all private, so that you don't start arguments with your friends and family on Facebook. As that is something that will inevitably happen on Facebook anyways.

What is interesting about this Voting Guide is that you can "Favorite" everyone you plan to vote for, then email the results to yourself to take with you to the polls on November 8th. This can be especially helpful, especially if you are in a district that is voting for a ton of different offices and proposals (like those in California are). You can check out the Voting Guide using the source link below, keep in mind it'll be different for most people, especially those that live in different areas. Also keep in mind that some States are already doing early voting, so there's a possibility that you can go out and vote right now and make your vote count. Whenever you go out to vote, just make sure you vote. As it's always important that everyone that is eligible to vote, gets out to vote.
