Good luck to all of you spending a long, long day reporting on election day. Here are my top five websites if you need to research information on state or federal elections Tuesday:
- Federal Election Commission, with law, campaign finance data, quick answers to common questions and more.
- Ballotpedia‘s links to election agencies in all states
- Poll data at Gallup polls or PollingReport.com
- The Library of Congress Thomas site with links to all websites of current U.S. House and U.S. Senate members, bills and more
- FactCheck.org or PolitiFact to verify or debunk claims about candidates
And here’s my quirky bonus: The Green Papers. This doesn’t look like much but I’ve found the information to be spot-on for primary and caucus dates, convention information, state links and historical perspective.
Let me know below other must-haves political sites that you use.
