Know who/what you're voting for

I've always believed that there should be some standard of knowledge of either the person or, in the case of resolutions etc, what the underlying issues are, before a vote may be cast.

In this past election for example, out of all the positions being vied for, the only ones I cast my vote for were president and one of the senate seats. I didn't know enough about any of the other people running for things like the school board, so I didn't vote for any of them.

The (D) or (R) after there name has no meaning to me and I defy anyone to explain them.
