The February 2008 issue of Searcher magazine has an article by Laura Gordon-Murnane entitled "The 51st State: Congressional Elections" (pdf) in which she talks about the other (non-Presidential) federal elections. In November the nation will also elect 435 Representatives and 33 Senators, and we don’t hear much about all those elections. So to help educate us before we vote she has thoughtfully provided an online tutorial called Tech Tools for the American Voter and the 2008 Congressional Elections. It steps you through how to get educated for the upcoming Congressional elections. You can use it to find out if you are registered to vote, find biographical information on your Congressman or Senator as well as his or her voting records, and follow the money donations and campaign fundraising for the upcoming election. The tutorial shows different websites and how you can learn more about the voting process and the candidates. It’s informative and it provides a painless way to get informed before casting your vote.
