 REFERENCE GUIDE: FACTS ON PRESIDENTIAL, CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Voters who'd like one more chance to see what the presidential candidates said in their three debates, or want to find out how a local congressional incumbent voted on key issues, can do so by visiting any one of 265 Software Etc! stores nationwide between now and the Nov. 3 election.
 Through a special arrangement with the PRODIGY service, Software Etc! stores will have personal computers connected to the PRODIGY service's extensive "Political Profile" database. Anyone can visit the stores and use the popular online service at no charge to review key facts concerning presidential and congressional candidates. Visitors do not need to be members of the PRODIGY service. The service, which has more than 1-3/4 million members nationwide, is easy to use and requires no computer skill.
 Specifically, voters can see the following national and local election information displayed online:
 -- Issues At a Glance - A side-by-side comparison of the stances of President Bush, Governor Clinton and Ross Perot on all major issues.
 -- Speeches - Full text of all major speeches and all three presidential debates.
 -- Candidates' Q&A - Answers from Bush and Clinton to selected questions from PRODIGY service members.
 -- Political Profiles of House & Senate Candidates - The PRODIGY service database covers incumbents and challengers for Congress. It includes biographies, voting records on key issues, congressional committee participation, PAC contributions, past election results, and ratings by different interest groups.
 Voters who aren't sure what district they're in, or who represents them, can type in their states and ZIP codes, and the PRODIGY service will find it for them.
 -- News, Polls & Experts - All the late-breaking political news.
 On Election Night, PRODIGY will provide round-the-clock coverage of presidential, congressional and gubernatorial races, with election-count updates appearing four to eight times an hour. Voters need only to type in their ZIP code to get fresh local tallies.
 Want to see how PRODIGY service members feel about the elections?

Plus, voters can read political analysis by experts like Jack Germond and Robert Novak.
