Dulcinea's Insight

  • If you want to learn a lot about a candidate, track his or her donors. Use these sites to find out who has given to a campaign, and then do some independent research on the groups or individuals who have given to each candidate. You can gain valuable insight into a candidate based on who supports him or her.
  • If you don’t want to donate money to a campaign but are interested in supporting it, you can always offer your time. Go to your candidate’s official Web site to find out how you can volunteer. Otherwise, go to Meetup to learn how you can get involved in individual campaigns through meetings and other volunteer opportunities.
