- Plan plenty of time to be at the polls. Early indications are that turnout is going to be heavy. Don't get discouraged by the crowds. Instead, celebrate that people are exercising this great freedom we have.
- Visit this site if you're not sure where you're suppose to vote.
- Take your kids with you to vote. Explain to them the process.
- If you experience any problem or confusion while voting report the situation to one of the poll workers or election officials immediately. Do not wait until you have finished voting. If the election officials at the polling place are unable or unwilling to help you, the problem should be reported directly to the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. There are no special forms to use or procedures to follow--just call the Civil Rights Division toll-free at (800) 253-3931.
- If you are voting for the first time, check your state's requirements for what kind of ID you'll be asked to present.
After you've voted, come back here and tell us about your experience (how long did you wait, any problems with voting machines, did you take your children, etc) and then grab this "I Voted" button and put it on your blog to encourage others to exercise their own vote today!
