Has this election season inspired you to get out to the polls for the first time in a few years? Need to brush up on your election day info? The League of Women Voters has a stockpile of information – everything from registration to polling place locations.

Vote411.org brings you the information and tools you need to make sure you are ready to walk into the polls on election day!

VOTE411.org Gets a Facelift - VOTE411.org, the League's one-stop shop for election information, was recently redesigned to make the site even more voter-friendly. In addition to exploring the site's fresh new look, you'll still be able to find important information on getting registered, voting in your state, and much more. Check back often as we work to include the most up-to-date polling place information in advance of Election Day!

Register to Vote Using VOTE411.org - October is here and many states' registration deadlines are fast approaching. Encourage friends and family to log on to VOTE411.org to get registered in time for the General Election. Or you can forward the League's Voter Registration Challenge e-Card.

Overseas Voter Tools - Along with the VOTE411 redesign, new tools were added to the League's overseas voter tool. Not only can overseas voters register and request an absentee ballot, those who have already requested their ballot but haven't received it can now download their ballot, print it and mail it in. Furthermore, Federal Express is providing them with discounted return postage. Please forward the link to these tools to any overseas and military citizens you know.
