SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Election Day is less than a week away, and Facebook has developed a new tool to make sure you know the candidates in the presidential and local elections.

The new feature provides you with a sample ballot for your area and a preview of each candidate. You can even email yourself information about the candidates to use as a reference on Nov. 8.

Want advice from your Facebook friends? The tool has an option for that. The feature allows you to ask your friends for advice if you’re undecided. You can also see posts from others to see what your friends are saying about the candidates.

And of course, if you want to keep your choices to yourself, there is an option to keep everything private.
