Facebook has launched a new tool that directs voters to information about candidates such as stances on issues, endorsements, recent Facebook posts and campaign websites.
Within the guide, you can add a candidate to your favorites list in order to walk into the voting booth with a detailed list of preferred candidates. After making all your selections, Facebook included a tool at the bottom of the voter guide to email yourself a copy of that preferred list.
Describing the motivation about creating a voter guide, Facebook product marketing manager Jeremy Galen said “We are encouraging civic engagement because we want to make it easier for people to participate and have a voice in the political process…We want to help people get information about the candidates and issues all the way down the ballot.”
