Hi all,

How many days until the Presidential election?  26 I think, so there's still time to do some research if you or patrons have questions. A valuable unbiased, nonpartisan source is the MeL database Opposing Viewpoints in Context<http://www.galesupport.com/migeoipcheck/migeoipcheck-gale.php?database=OVIC>. Sure it's designed with students in mind but any Michigander can browse the issues list to learn about topics such as immigration, gun control, women in politics, national security, and many more.

Websites that might prove useful include:
Michigan Secretary of State<http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,8611,7-127-1633---,00.html> - numerous links to resources including a full candidate listing for all open offices.
ProCon.org<http://2016election.procon.org/view.source-summary-chart.php> - side-by-side comparison between candidates on 75 key issues as well as other resources.
Vote Smart - Just the Facts<http://votesmart.org/> - free, factual, unbiased information on candidates and elected officials and their votes, positions, ratings, speeches, and funding.
Pew Research Center<http://www.people-press.org/> - research and studies.
PBS News Hour Watch the Debates<https://www.watchthedebates.org/> - watch and interact with every presidential debate since 1960.
