This isn't limited to the presidential race, so if you want to share your love for a candidate in one of the Congressional races, you can do that too.

Not against getting political on Facebook? Here's how you do it. Go to the page of the politician you support and click the "endorsements" tab on the left sidebar.

Select "endorse," choose the audience you want to share it with, write your spiel about why you endorse that candidate, and then click "post."

If only Facebook could counter-balance this with a filter to block all election content for those who simply don't want to see it until after November 8.
