Love them or hate them, everyone is talking about this year's presidential election candidates.

The debates were live streamed on just about every outlet you can imagine, has taken over Twitter and even the candidates themselves have even taken to social media this year to promote their own ideas and campaigns.

Now that the debates are over and the election is in its final stretch, you can announce to the country which candidate you support by adding a special endorsement post to your Facebook page.

And it's important to note that this isn't just for the presidential election. You can also show your support for a certain senator, representative and other local positions in your area.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the official page of the candidate you want to endorse.
  2. Select the Endorsements tab, located on the left-hand side of the page.
  3. Head to the right side of the page and click "Endorse."
  4. Compose your post and you're all set.endorsements

Here's what will show up on your timeline:

And, since politics is a major reason people unfriend each other or get in Facebook wars, you can also limit your audience by selecting "Who can see this" after you click on the "Endorse" button. Here, you can block individuals, groups or everyone in general.
