It has long been said that it is the right and the duty of every American to vote. But there is an unwritten rule that it also is an American duty to familiarize yourself with the candidates, the policies, and the effects they have on others.

Their last-minute decisions on voting helped to make our election results unpredictable and surprising to many.
