I just got my California Permanent Absentee Ballot in the mail yesterday, spiking my previous Election Fascination to full-blown Election Fever.

Since the best kind of voter is an educated one, I’ve added a Grist Election widget to the sidebar to the right, which will let you browse their comprehensive coverage of each candidate’s positions on various environmental-type issues. Or, if you want something a little more at-a-glance, they’ve also got a condensed chart of all the info.

Obviously, there are a lot of issues to consider when you’re voting for a potential President, but the environment should definitely be on your list.

Oh, and if you’re in California, there’s still time to register to vote. You’ve got until January 21st to get your application postmarked. Get on it!
