Are you prepared for one of the most memorable elections in American history? Where can you find reliable and objective online information about local, state, and federal candidates, local referendums, and concerns about voting in-person versus mail-in ballots? Which sites should be avoided? How can social media help or hinder your ability to vote without being overwhelmed by angry voices? What sources will provide your children with credible information for school reports?
Starting with the philosophy that you should be making up your own mind about candidates and political issues, we will offer suggestions about finding facts and avoiding interpretations and opinions, regardless of your philosophical point of view. We will also offer local digital resources in Nebraska and Iowa and different ways to follow election night news.
