Unsure where your candidate stands? Check here!

Are you still in the "undecided" column? Wondering how to vote in the upcoming election? Here are some resources that might help.

So, you don’t know who should get your vote? Well, there are always the candidates’ debates. However, should you select the next leader of the free world based on whether he knows how to argue cleverly in public?

And there’s always the beauty contest. Which candidate looks like a president? Well, remember that perhaps our greatest commander-in-chief, Abraham Lincoln, was the homeliest and most awkward candidate imaginable. People hated his speeches — even the Gettysburg Address flopped when he delivered it.

So, maybe  you’d rather base your choice on the issues facing America. Which concern you most? Abortion? Then check out the National Right to Life website’s various scorecards. They’re adamantly anti-abortion and don’t think much of stem-cell research or Obamacare. On the other side of the abortion aisle, there’s the NARAL Pro-Choice scorecard.

Maybe you want a candidate who agrees with you on same-gender marriage. Check out these resources from the Family Research Council on the right and the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network on the left.

Perhaps you’re a party loyalist – a “yellow dog Democrat” so devoted to the party of Thomas Jefferson that you’d vote for a golden retriever if it ran for office as a Democrat. On the other hand, maybe your loyalty is with the party of Abe Lincoln and Ronald Reagan – then check out the GOP website. Or maybe you’re a Libertarian or a Socialist or a Prohibitionist or … what the heck, a British Conservative or Chinese Communist.
