All voters planning to cast ballots in the upcoming elections should avail themselves to the information available on their candidate of interest. You should know enough about the candidate in general to know that, if elected, they will present policies and ideas that are in keeping with what you want and the good of the country.

Do not take the candidate at face value as seen on TV or printed publications. Detailed information is available and it behooves the voter to take advantage of it.

The election of a candidate that does not have the best interests of the country at heart by uninformed voters is a tragedy and can be avoided.
