Election Day is here, and it’s a good idea to verify and review basic information before going to the polling place. Many election offices offer online polling place locators, registration status updates and other customer service tools to assist voters. Visit your state’s election office website to access these tools and get basic information. Try to find the answers to these questions before going to vote:

  • Where do I vote? Due to redistricting and other changes, do not assume you are voting in the same location as last time!
  • What do I need to bring? Find out if you are required to bring identification. If so, what kind.
  • What are the voting hours?

Many election officials provide sample ballots that can be easily downloaded from the Internet. It’s always a good idea to take a few minutes to review the ballot before going to vote. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!
