Election 2016

September 30th, 2016 by mlproulx

This year’s presidential election is one of the most contentious in recent memory, and we are all watching it play out day-by-day across all forms of media – whether we want to or not! I’m sorry to say that we can’t just stick our heads in the sand and wait for it all to be over. So if you’re looking for a bit more information about the candidates, wondering what news sources to trust, or still need to register to vote, we’ve got you covered.

 

Check out our Election Research Guide for all of this and more!

 

We want to prepare our Cardinals to be informed, involved, principled, and productive citizens and lifelong learners.
