LET'S BREAK DOWN THE STEPS. I'll tackle practical logistics first, ballot research second. The second thing will probably be the hardest for us, honestly.

OKAY HERE WE GO– THE PHYSICAL ACT OF VOTING:
Are you voting in person?

1. locate your polling place! bfy.tw/4fOf Google has an easy form to enter your address.

2. Use google maps to find out how long it will take to get there from where you are coming from that day.
