In an attempt to better inform voters, the new Facebook Candidate Info feature lets users hear about political platforms from the actual candidates running for election. Available for both federal, state, and local positions, the platform will give candidates the ability to share posts and videos explaining why they're running for their particular office. The content can also focus on what the candidate cares about most and what they would hope to do if elected.
The Facebook Candidate Info feature aims to inform users before the upcoming 2018 midterm elections and can be easily accessed by selecting the "2018 Election" option in the menu of the Facebook app. The feature is also providing users with information on where they can go to vote through their vote planning tool.
