Tomorrow is Election Day! In areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy, there may be changes to official polling locations that are not reflected in online tools. Be sure to check with your local elections office for updates to polling sites.

If you need a little push before heading to the polls, watch JFK ask every American to turn out and vote and a fourth grade class implore you to “vote for somebody”.
As the results unfold, find out about turnout with the CNN National Exit Poll (click the Exit Poll tab), CIRCLE – Civic Youth, and Pew Hispanic. Learn more about the national exit poll.  

 Be Prepared with Your Election Day Toolbox!
Advertise polling hours prominently on your website and in your lobby. Find yours with our 50 state map. It’s not too late to download a “Vote November 6th” poster. Use the tools below to equip voters with the information necessary to ensure they successfully cast a ballot.
Google Poll Finder:

The 2012 Google Poll Finder tool uses official information from state elections offices and Secretaries of State to provide voters with current voting information. Type in your address to find your polling place and directions. In areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy, be sure to check directly with your local elections office for any updates to polling locations–these will likely not be reflected in online tools.

  • Embed the tool on your website to raise the profile of the election.
  • Share the link with your audience.
  • Set up a computer in your lobby to allow voters to check their voting information.

You can also use your state’s online poll finder or contact your local elections office.

Check Your Registration:
Wondering if and where you’re registered to vote?
Avoid potential problems at the polls and double check your registration before Election Day.
National Hotlines:
If you aren’t near a computer and need voting information, call a national hotline for assistance. They are also a great resource if you have trouble casting your ballot.
Contact your local elections office for help or with questions.
And for more!

On Election Day, don’t hesitate to call your local elections office with questions or concerns. Find yours. 

Happy Election Day Eve from Nonprofit VOTE!
