The Presidential Elections 2012 will be held tomorrow, November 6, and there are numerous websites to facilitate U.S. citizens to find their polling place and the time they're open.

Google has a tool called "Google Politics & Elections" available here in which people can type an address and Google retrieves information about the voter's polling place.


The nonpartisan website www.canivote.org also offers tools for registered voters to find their polling place. This website also provides a tool for voters to find out whether they are registered or not.

In most states, citizens must register before they can vote.

Another nonpartisan website is www.vote411.org. Besides provinding polling place locations, this website provides election related information such as early voting options and voter registration forms.

Citizens can also access state election Web sites, which include voter guides, registration information and deadlines, absentee and early voting dates, provisional voting information and polling place hours and locations. See States' websites Here. In these websites people can also find out whether the State has early voting.

Voting Tips for 2012 Presidential Elections

The following tips from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission may help enhance your voting experience.

Register to vote. Most States require citizens to be registered in order to vote. Make sure you understand the voter registration requirements of your State of residence. If you are not registered to vote, you must apply for voter registration no later than the deadline to register in your State. Contact your local or State elections office or check their Web site for information on how to obtain a voter registration application and the deadline to register. The National Voter Registration Application form is also available.

If you are already registered to vote. Confirm your voter registration status with your State or local elections office before the last day to register to vote. This will allow you to make any changes to your registration (for example: name, address, or other corrections) in sufficient time to vote.

Polling place location & hours. If you vote at a polling place on Election Day, confirm your polling place location and make sure you know what time your polling place opens and closes on Election Day.

Voter identification (ID) requirements. Some States may require you to show ID in order to vote. You can find out what your State ID requirements are by contacting your State or local elections office or checking their Web site.

Provisional voting. Federal law allows you to cast a provisional ballot if your name does not appear on the voter registration record, if you do not have ID, or if there are questions about your eligibility to vote. Your State may provide other reasons for voting by a provisional ballot. Whether a provisional ballot is counted depends on verification of your eligibility. Make sure you are familiar with the pro- visional voting process in your State.

Polling place accessibility. If you are a voter with special needs or specific concerns due to a disability, contact your local elections office for information, advice, and educational materials about voting equipment and details on access to the polling place, including designated parking.

Early voting. Some States allow voters to vote in person before Election Day. Find out if your State has early voting or in-person absentee voting and, if so, when and where you can vote before Election Day.

Absentee voting requirements. Most States allow voters to vote using an absentee ballot under certain circumstances. Check on the dates and requirements for requesting and returning an absentee ballot before Election Day. Absentee ballots are available many weeks before the election but often must be returned before Election Day.

Military voting. Special voting procedures may apply if you are in the U.S. military or an American citizen residing overseas. You may qualify for an absentee ballot by submitting a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). Contact the Federal Voting Assistance Program or check its Web site at www.fvap.gov for information relating to military and overseas voters.
