Party on, Dude?
Are political parties as useful as they once were? What is a Republican? What is a Democrat? What is an Independent? What are your impressions of how different parties stand on issues such as the environment, helping the less fortunate, homeland security and the war on terror?

Each week we will select a few readers-bloggers with sharp opinions about the election, voting and politics and present them with our "IN THE KNOW. IN THE VOTING BOOTH." award. These lucky students will receive cool string backpacks from the Times NIE department. So, get blogging!
