  Advice  

It's hard to avoid bias completely when election time comes around, so a good way to combat that is to consume information from a variety of reputable sources. The most reliable, trustworthy sites spend time, effort, and money making sure their facts are correct. In addition to national news sources, it may be a good idea to turn to international outlets because they have less reason to bias any one candidate. Lastly, check information and news frequently to stay up-to-date on the latest developments closer to voting, as states can change the laws shortly before an election.
