LOS ANGELES, Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ask most Americans of voting age: "Who's running for Congress in your voting district?"
Most likely, you'll get a lot of blank stares because most Americans don't even know who their current Congressperson is, let alone which Congressional District number they live in, or which Candidates are running for Congress in their district on November 4th.

While many Americans fear the competing bogeymen of voter fraud and restrictive voter ID laws to unfairly alter elections, the real enemy of Democracy according to Founding Father Thomas Jefferson and President John F. Kennedy is: voter ignorance and voter apathy.
Jefferson and Kennedy warned about the menace to society of the uninformed voter. Fortunately, they also agreed on the solution to the problem: voter-education:
- "If we think the people are not enlightened enough to exercise control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education." — Thomas Jefferson
- "The educated citizen...knows that only an educated and informed people will be a free people, that the ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all." See: http://youtu.be/2-Xj0lVS7WI — JFK
See who's running for Congress in your district – and who's worthy of your vote -- by visiting www.ClickVote.com.
Become an "educated citizen" and part of the "informed electorate" that democracy needs and that Kennedy, Jefferson and the Founding Fathers thought America should certainly have by now!
