Where do I vote? How to find your polling place

Know where to go this Tuesday, November 8

In what has been the most hotly contested election of our lifetime, your vote matters. Unless you’ve already cast your ballot, whether early or by absentee, Tuesday, November 8 will be the day most Americans from coast to coast make their way to schools, churches, community centers—all manner of public locations, really—to choose the candidate they deem most fit to be our nation’s next president.

If you’re not quite sure where to go, here’s a simple tool to help you find your polling place. Simply input your full address into the Google widget below and see not only the address and exact location of your polling location on a map, but also when it’s open, and who will be appearing on your local ballot.

You can also head to Vote.org, where you can learn more about absentee and early voting, as well as what you need to bring on Election Day. You can also read about each of the representatives, senators, council members, justices, and judges appearing on your ballot.

Depending on where you live, you’ll also be voting on some hot-button civic issues like legalizing weed, infrastructure and energy measures, and improving your cities in general, so make sure you know what’s going on before you head to the polls.
