This year students will be voting for candidates for the House of Representatives. How to find your District and candidate information can be found below.
Meet The CandidatesIt is important for voters to be knowledgeable about the candidates. The New Jersey Student Mock Election is providing this partial guide to make it easier for teachers and students to find information about the candidates in their district.
- The League of Women Voters offers VOTE411. Enter your address for your school’s address tofind information about the candidates in your district. The League of Women Voters asked candidates to answer a series of questions, but not all candidates responded, something students may want to take into consideration as they evaluate the candidates.
- Ballotpedia offers a similar site. Again, enter your school’s address for candidate information andpossible web sites, however the links are often more available for incumbents. Some of the links are campaign sites, and students are cautioned that they are therefore partisan and they should exercise good media literacy skills. In addition, political campaigns often ask for donations. Students are NOT to donate to campaigns, but simply use the sites for research.
- A third possible option is the non-partisan, mostly volunteer site The Voter’s Self Defense System -Vote Smart
