Check your polling place location on the back of your yellow notification card, as many polling locations have changed. Do not assume you will be voting in the same place as the last election. Avoid voting at the busiest times- before work, lunch hour and after work. Mail ballots have to be in by eight tonight and any campaign paraphernalia need be left at home to help keep polling places nonpartisan. Campaign slogans are banned within a hundred feet of polling places.
