Nota BeneWith the elections coming up here are some useful links:
My Polling Place. For most of us, there is only one place where we can vote, i.e. a specific polling place or precinct. This site helps you identify your correct precinct. You can also call 1-866-OUR-VOTE for information. Remember that if you go to your polling place and they say you're not registered, the law says you have the right to ask for a provisional ballot.
American Presidency. Encyclopedia Britannica is making an informative section of its service available free of charge. This is a great resource where you can "read about the presidents and explore the electoral process, election results, images, video, and important documents related to the evolution of the nation's highest office." Great learning tool for kids, too.
Political Block Party. Why not have a political block party with your kind of political folk for a discussion of the issues the weekend before the election? This site lets you search for politically likeminded people that you can invite in your area.
Ballot Byte. This is a free downloadable game from the Internet, sort of an electoral Pac Man created bya programming student at SMU. You can "select your favorite candidate and make your way through the maze of fundraising and campaigning. You'll gobble up money bags and capture swing states for extra "votes" while you dodge your opponent's mascot." Enjoy!
