You’ve seen the advertisements. You’ve likely been subject to a dizzying array of phone calls from your local field office – they want your vote. And the news media is covering and analyzing the candidates and their every sneeze. The pieces on the “chessboard” of the American political landscape have been set. November 6th is Election Day in the United States of America.
And there’s a lot at stake as it concerns feeding a growing population: international affairs, foreign aid, The Farm Bill, etc. Sadly, though, very little focus was given to these topics especially during the foreign policy debate. Our friends over at ONE.org asked President Obama and Governor Romney (the front-runners in the race for POTUS) what, if elected, they would do to combat extreme poverty and preventable disease. Read their answers here.
While Oxfam America is non-partisan and does not (and will not) endorse any candidate running for political office, we do strongly encourage our supporters to vote on November 6th.
