Here in the U.S., the quadrennial presidential election cycle seems to start earlier and earlier…to the point where it seems that no sooner is one sworn in than politicians start announcing that they are going to be the next one. But the real election season kicks off in February preceding the general election, when the first state primaries and caucuses are held.
Which makes this a good time to talk about political campaigns and your website. If you have no idea who any of the candidates are and want nothing to do with them, you’re probably all set. But if you have the urge to show your support on your site, you could be wading into the murky and somewhat counterintuitive world of campaign finance regulations.
