Broadcast news, the Internet, magazines, newspapers, and social media make it easier than ever for individuals, companies, and organizations to broadcast their messages. These media also make it easier than ever for you to get information about the issues and policies that you care about.
With all of this information flowing, it is more important than ever for you to investigate the truth and verify the "facts."
The resources on this page will help you to learn more about the candidates, issues, and policies being discussed during this election. Use critical thinking and the fact check resources to verify what you learn.
