2012 Presidential Election Voter Guide

Check out Campus Election Engagement Project's nonpartisan 2012 Presidential Election Voter Guide, which concisely summarizes the candidates' positions on major issues, drawing on the work Project Vote Smart has done on their candidate guides and rounded out with research. A lot of people, students especially, feel like they don't have enough time to learn all the nuances and details of the positions President Obama and Governor Romney have taken, so this guide should be a huge help in figuring out which candidate best represents your values. Take a look and send it out to all your friends, too.

 Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP)is a non-partisan project that helps America's colleges and universities get as many of their 20 million students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves, and turn out at the polls.  Focusing on administrators, faculty, and staff, and ways they can help engage students, CEEP worked with 500 schools in 2008 and hope to work with even more this round.
