    Below are three steps all citizens can do to become informed citizens:

    1).First, be engaged. The community you live in offers many chances for your involvement, whether through civic groups, faith-based organizations, charitable activities, organized sports, or local school activities.

    2).Second, be curious. Thanks to television, the internet, and other technology, at no other time have we been able to find so many answers, viewpoints, and ideas so swiftly. However, most of this information is discovered in isolation, and it is important to be curious about our community by reaching out into it.

    3).Finally, be perceptive. We can soon become weighed down with information, about not only local events, activities, and issues, but also national news, gossip, and opinions. How do we know what to believe in order to be an informed citizen? The key is to be perceptive to identify reliable information. It is important to know the source of information to understand if it is reliable.

    Read a reliable News paper. (not the national enquirer) Watch the news. Watch political debates and pay attention to the topics that each candidate supports. Learn how your government actually works.
