This election cycle is bringing about a lot of controversy without a doubt, but it is also sparking some confusion among voters. Luckily, The Federalist has answered the top six most burning questions about the elections to guide you through the process. 

Are Joe Biden and Joseph R. Biden the same person?
We know this one is pretty confusing, but yes. If you are planning to vote for Joe Biden you can bubble in “Joseph R. Biden.”

There is no pronunciation guide for Kamala Harris. How can I be sure I am voting for the right one?
Luckily, there is only one Kamala. And there is no pronunciation requirement, so you can vote without embarrassing yourself too much. 

If I am voting for Trump/Pence, does that include the fly?
This is unknown as of right now, but perhaps. 

My aunt Ethel posted on Facebook that she would block anyone who votes for Biden, but two girls from my CC class posted on Instagram that they would block anyone who votes for Trump. What do I do?
Vote for Howie Hawkins. That way, everybody wins. Except Howie, probably. 

I am an international student, but I still want to vote. How can I?
If you work on the immigration process now, you may be able to vote in the 2040 elections! Don’t lose hope!

Do I have to use a No. 2 pencil or is a mechanical pencil okay?
. . . It’s a pen. Use a pen.
