Where’s my polling place?

A lot of folks have shed a lot of sweat for us to have the right to vote.

Here’s how to find the polling locations in your state using either a voter lookup application or other information at your Secretary of State (or Commonwealth) website.

I was surprised (and saddened) to learn that not all states have a voter lookup tool. Lots of state voting websites fail to clearly answer (sometimes, fail to even articulate) the question: Where do I go to vote? or Where is my polling place?

Find your state voter lookup application or your state website focused on voter information.

And here’s when your polls open and close.
