Whether you want to be a more informed citizen or just want to kill some time before 5 on a Friday afternoon, WegoWise has got you covered. Election Day is right around the corner, but it's not too late to make greener choices than you did four years ago.  So peruse our best links, give us some feedback and be sure to share some of the info you just gleaned with other interested parties at the parties you are hopefully attending this weekend. Brought to you by Dan,NateLilyCatherineCasey, and Joanna.

1. Not sure who shares your views on all of the issues? With VoteSmart, you can customize your opinions by topic and see which Presidential and Congressional candidates are most like you. You can even narrow it down to your local elections, by zip code.

2. Check out (by state!) how your state's congress representatives have voted on food policy.

3. Which candidates have been nationally recognized for their environmental actions? Find out the national Sierra Club endorsements on the most environmentally-conscious candidate. From Massachusetts? Click here. 

4. If you don't know already, learn about both Romney and Obama's stances on energy policy. Use your knowledge to convince your friends who to vote for this weekend.

5. When the election is over, what are you going to do with your campaign sign(s) that have been sitting on your lawn? Recycle it? Great! Why not be creative and transform it into a bicycle panier or fender!
