Go to the right place

It may sound obvious, but polling locations change. Be sure to locate your local precinct and double-check it the day-of before you go to vote. Work, school, picking up the kids, and grocery shopping can make any day hectic, so make it a point to find your polling station and familiarize yourself with its hours of operation.

Election Day

Voting takes time. Plan to get to the polls early and remember to check voting requirements ahead of time. Each state does things a little differently, contact your state election office to find out what documents you need to bring with you to vote. If ID is needed in your state, make sure your name and address on your voter registration matches your name and address on your ID by the election. In some places, a current utility bill, paycheck or other document that includes your name and street address may also work.

Make Sure Your Vote is Counted!

Don't panic if you registered to vote but arrive at the polling station to find you are not on the list. Get help from a poll worker to make sure your vote is counted. You have the right to cast a provisional ballot so your state can iron out any registration discrepancies, or you should be given directions to another polling place if you are listed at a different station.
