Election Day is almost here, and if you're one of those last-minute voters, we've got you covered on the where, when and how. From finding your local polling place, to creating a personal voting cheat sheet, the following resources will help pave the way toward an informed, stress-free voting experience.
Where To Go
Click on the handy Google Voter Info embed above to find the location of your designated polling place by simply entering the address where you're registered to vote.
The League of Women Voters also has a user-friendly website that provides similar tools. On the site's homepage, along the left-hand side, is a spot where you can type in your address and ZIP code to find out your assigned polling place, and even confirm whether your voter registration is current.
The Sacramento County Elections Office also has a similar online tool, which can be found here. Most polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., but double check your location's details to ensure the utmost accuracy.
Another useful tool on the Vote411 page is the "Build Your Ballot" feature, which allows you to plan your votes before-hand. Simply type in your address to view side-by-side candidates running for president, U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, California Assembly, and more. You can "learn where canidates running for office in your community stand on the issues" and print or email the information to use as reference material when you vote, according to the League of Women Voters.
Also, for all those propositions – 11 in total – read all about them at the state's official voter information guide website.
