“Where do I vote?” is a question on the lips of many Americans today (as well featured as a Google Doodle), and, if you want to get one of those nifty “I Voted” stickers, listen up.
If you are asking “where do I vote?”, you are not alone, as many voters are unsure of their polling place or, worse, were displaced by Hurricane Sandy and now have no idea where to vote. Luckily, the internet has come to the rescue!
Firstly, New Yorkers in counties affected by Sandy who are asking “where do I vote?” should know that as we reported yesterday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo relaxed certain voting regulations due to the lingering effects of Sandy.
What this means for you, if you are a New Yorker looking to vote today, is that there is a high likelihood you can vote at any polling place with an affidavit ballot. Proof you have been displaced is not necessary to cast your vote, as the order came down less than 24 hours ago and voters gotta vote.
Now, the other 49 states. If you’re wondering “where do I vote?” you should also know that today’s Google Doodle has got your back.
Go to Google, and you will note that today’s “where do I vote?” Google Doodle is composed of ballots. Click on the “where do I vote?” Google Doodle, and there you have it! Up pops a field for you to enter your home address, and your polling place will be displayed upon entry.
In addition to the “where do I vote?” field, there will also be a sample ballot so you can think about your choices before you go exercise your civic duty.
So what are you waiting for? Get out the vote!
