Oh my, the day is finally here! I slept horribly last night -- multiple dreams in which I forgot to vote! I know, I'm a bit dorky in that regard, but it's true! Make sure you don't forget to vote today. Find someone to watch the kids, bring a book and a cup of coffee, and get excited!! We're making history today!

Election 2008 Voting Information

Today, November 4th, is Election Day! Remember to vote—not just for president, but for Congressional, state, and local candidates as well.

Where and when do I vote?

Find your polling place, voting times, and other important information by checking out these sites and the hotline below. These resources are good, but not perfect. To be doubly sure, you can also contact your local elections office.

What should I do before I go?

  • After you've entered your address on either Vote For Change or Vote411, read the voting instructions and special rules for your state.
  • Voting ID laws vary from state to state, but if you have ID, bring it.
  • Check out all the voting myths and misinformation to look out for: http://truth.voteforchange.com/

What if something goes wrong?

  • Not on the voter list? Make sure you're at the right polling place, then demand a provisional ballot.
  • If you're voting on an electronic machine with a paper record, verify that the record is accurate.
  • Need legal help? Call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
  • If you encounter a problem, try to videotape the situation and submit it to VideoTheVote.org

Want to do more?

  • Text all of your friends: "Vote today! Pass it on!"
  • Volunteer at your local Obama office. Find an office here or here.

Now, everybody go vote!!!


  1. BTW... Starbucks gives away free coffee today to people who vote...

    but... don't drink too much coffee... Caffeine is a diuretic!

  2. Ha! That's great :-)
    You can also get a free scoop of ice cream from Ben & Jerry's!
