7 Great Election Apps

Whether you are a political junkie or more of a casual voter, there is an app for you in this election season.

This round up offers you Droid or iOS apps that you can use to make informed voting decisions and may even help you win debates with friends and family!

We have included a great role-playing game for you (or perhaps your kids) to simulate a true run for office such as wooing voter strategies, manage budgets and more.

Take this opportunity to engage your kids in the privilege and civic obligation of this amazing right we enjoy as US citizens. I always find it fascinating to dig into what kids understand about the issues facing their future and how they rationalize a preference for one candidate or another.
