Don't merely vote; vote knowledgeably and informed.

I came across this website watching PBS. It's a comprehensive list of issues, legislation, elected officials and candidates from across the US.

Project Vote Smart

In their own words:

Thousands of candidates and elected officials. Who works for you? Who is seeking your vote? Project Vote Smart, a citizen's organization, has developed a Voter's Self-Defense system to provide you with the necessary tools to self-govern effectively: abundant, accurate, unbiased and relevant information. As a national library of factual information, Project Vote Smart covers your candidates and elected officials in five basic categories: biographical information, issue positions, voting records, campaign finances and interest group ratings.

I thought the site was very informative, but I think I already know what the conservatives are going to say about it, should they choose to post here.

You should consider emailing them and explaining your situation, cannistershot.

They're open to comments and suggestions.

At least vote for a third party candidate. Don't waste your vote.

Be counted as a voter for "other," rather than as an apathetic non-voter.

I'm voting for David Cobb of the Green Party myself.

Not bad, but could be organized better
It would be nice to see a tabulation of how an individual candidate voted instead of having to click on each one. But, I only gave a cursory glance so I may have missed that. Looks like an okay site.
