I am a huge fan of amazing groups that are making it easier for us to become informed in the lead up to elections. Human beings are busy. We can't possibly keep up with all of the issues that are being discussed politically. That's why I love ideas that help us to find the information we need quickly and that don't chastise us for not bein more informed but invite us to learn.
As a former teacher I know that having information that is accessible is also hugely important. The majority of Canadians read at a Gr.6 reading level therefore, we need to make election information easy to navigate for a 12 year old. Some of my favourite ideas include Vote Kit's 30 Days to Vote the CBC's Vote Compass and Student Vote's voting kits for classrooms.
