This Civic Engagement LibGuide provides links to resources and information about issues from voting, researching issues and candidates, how elections work, as well as library resources such as books, e-books and streaming videos.

Political Parties

In the United States people typically align themselves with ideas of particular political parties. Political parties are made up of individuals who organize themselves to win elections, operate government, and influence public policy.  Currently there are two major political parties in the United States, Democrats and Republicans although there are many smaller political parties in operation.
