Tuesday is Election Day - and Patch is here to help get you organized and prepared in a flash, so your busy week isn't too far disrupted.
Thanks to the handy website Vote411.org, presented by the League of Women Voters, you can now find just about all the information you could ever need, at the click of a mouse.
Find Your Polling Place
Right on the website's home page, along the left side, is a handy spot where you can type in your street, city and zip and find out where your assigned polling place is, and even confirm whether or not your voter registration is current.
For example, if you live in the 1000 block of Jefferson Avenue in Redwood City in zip code 94061, your polling place is the Redwood City Fire Station #10 at the corner of Jefferson and Myrtle.
Plan Your Votes Ahead and Create Your Own Cheat Sheet
Another handy tool on Vote411.org is the "Build Your Ballot" tool, which allows you to plan your voting choices ahead of time.
Type in your address to see the races on your ballot. Candidates' positions can be compared side-by-side, and you can even print out a "ballot" indicating your preferences as a reminder and take it with you to the polls on Election Day.
