It’s November 6, 2012, voting day. The problem is, finding your polling place to submit your vote. Make sure you vote at your precinct. If you don’t vote at the precinct you’re registered for, your vote will not count. If you get a random phone cell telling you that your polling location has changed or that the election day has been moved to another date, don’t believe it, it’s a scam.
If you live in New York and were affected by Hurricane Sandy, your voting location most likely did change. In this case, you should verify the new polling location. New Yorkers, text “NYCVOTES” or “DONDE” (Español) to 877-877. There are also services available nationwide for people who need to look up their voting location. One option is to simply text the word “Where” to 877877 and then enter your address.
For the rest of us in the United States, Google has made it easy, like they do with most things that we need information on. All you have to do is type your home address into the field to find out where do you vote. Where do I Vote? Find your Polling Place.
Do you need to know if you can vote? CanIVote.org can help verify if you are registered to vote as well as lists polling places, what to bring in order to vote and information about the candidates.
