Today isn’t a day for words of wisdom (even if I had any) so instead here’s a list of resources for you to use or share as the nation heads out for Election Day:

Polling place finders/other voting info

+ Google
+ Bing
+ VoterHub mobile app
+ Mobile Commons: Text WHERE (or “DONDE”) to 877877

You can also go to the National Association of Secretaries of State’s Can I Vote page for links to official state websites or the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s contact info for state election officials (including social media).

State election laws and procedures

+ National Association of Secretaries of State’s Election Ready Resources page

+ National Conference of State Legislatures’ Election Laws and Procedures page – especially the invaluable voter ID page

+ Ohio State Moritz School of Law calendar of post-election deadline in key states

Reference shelf

+ Rick Hasen’s Election Law Blog
+ Paul Gronke’s Early Voting Information Center
+ Michael McDonald’s U.S. Election Project
+ Caltech/MIT’s Voting Technology Project – and the associated blog, ElectionUpdates
+ Pew’s Election Data Dispatches

And of course, make sure you bookmark and check electionline.org today – we’ll be (trying!) to stay on top of all of the day’s news.

I’ll keep adding to this throughout the day … good luck to everyone and if you’re eligible to vote and haven’t yet done so, go vote!
