  Advice  

  • The most reliable, trustworthy sites spend time, effort & money making sure their facts are correct.


  • It's hard to avoid bias completely, so a good way to combat that is to consume information from different reputable sources.


  • It may also be a good idea to turn to international outlets because they have less reason to have a bias.


  • Lastly, check info & news frequently & stay up-to-date on the latest developments closer to voting, as states can change the laws shortly before an election.
