Shirley Jin: Be informed, then vote
Money in politics is a complicated issue: Candidates must be able to communicate their positions, and, at the same time, large amounts of money distort the conversations that must take place. As voters, we have to be sophisticated enough to recognize that wall-to-wall TV ads and flashy brochures are not the best way to make our choices.
One source of information on candidates and issues is the League's collection of election information at: vote411.org/.
The LWVBC website at lwvbc.org links to videos of candidate forums and other election information.
Get informed and then vote.
