In honor of election day, here's a list of Web sites that might find useful:

  • Your county clerk's Web site. In most states, this is the place to start to find out who's on the ballot, where your polling place is, and how you'll be voting.
  • The League of Women Voters has non-partisan information on races and issues. Since most of the races will be local, be sure to check your local LWV site.
  • Another site with extensive, non-partisan coverage of candidates, visit Project Vote Smart. Enter your zip code and you'll get data about the races that affect you.
  • Go to Opensecrets.org to get information on who's giving money to your candidate.

Of course, most of these sites will be experiencing heavy loads today, so you may have to try a few times to get the data you want. Most polling places across the nation are expected to be crowded, especially those where new voting machines are being used and voters are taking extra time to figure them out. Get there early.

If you have a favorite site with campaign information, leave it in a comment.
