Don't enter your polling place without doing a little research first! Before you run out to vote next week, be sure to consult these political apps to find out who is running where, the politicians' real stances on issues, and which talking points actually hold up after fact checking.
If the last of the 2012 Presidential debates haven't completely fatigued you, head over to the App Store and grab an iPhone app that will add a bit of levity to the heated political season -- no matter who you're voting for.
Every four years, the political hype machines of both major parties start up with the goal of churning out pitch-perfect rhetoric and the right plan for the people. Unfortunately, the machines usually just devolve into devices built to hurl insults and accusations instead of providing thought-provoking debate and a discussion of the country's future. At some point during the cycle, the same thought seems to cross every person's mind: "I could be a better President than those guys." Whether you're confident in your debating skills or you've got a knack for mudslinging, we've got some games that will let you take to your own campaign trail. Prove politics is more than a game -- or at least is a contact sport -- with these eight iOS experiences.
The presidential election season is in full swing, with the candidates vying for your approval this November.
