Find your local voting place

This year is a big one for politics. In 2016, we're having a pretty important presidential election and, as an American, you want to make sure your voice is heard. In order to do that, you have to vote. After all, it's your right as an American.

The trouble is, not everyone knows where their polling place is located, and, to make matters worse, not everyone knows what issues are on the ballot. How is anyone supposed to make an informed decision on which way to vote and where?

That's where the Voter Information Project (VIP) comes in. It's a handy site (as well as an app) that tells you where you can cast your ballot and can let you know what issues are on your local ballot.

All you need to do is enter your full mailing address in the site's Voter Information Tool. If that's the address that you are registered under, you should be able to see your polling place's location on a Google map.

From there, you'll even be able to get directions. If no results show up, it could be because you're too early to the party. Exact polling information is posted 2 to 4 weeks before Election Day.
