Elections are coming…that’s what I hear…

This week is a special Election Edition of Weekly Web Wonders.  As I
understand it, Americans will be voting for important offices this
November.  These sites should be pretty unbiased and good for student
consumption.

Have a great week…hope you can dry out a bit!
