As information professionals, connecting users with reliable sources is one of our key missions in life, right? This goal becomes even more critical (and complicated!) when we discuss the topic of voting. Participants will learn how to help patrons find the facts about candidates and issues at the federal, state and local levels. We’ll be featuring publicly available sources like Project Vote Smart, the League of Women Voters, and Congress.gov.
Attendees of this webinar will learn how to
- Explore voting records of current members of Congress
- Uncover available information about PACs (Political Action Committees) and their connections to various candidates
- Get background information on ballot issues at the local, state and federal levels
