This presidential race has been one for the history books, that's for sure. Finally the end is near. The finish line is upon us.

All we need is for you to vote! I don't care if you wait 15+ hours - you have to cast your ballot tomorrow.

Here are some great resources to help you get to the voting or poll locations. These will also tell you when the polls open, and hopefully answer any other questions you may have about "where do I vote?".

Google Maps - Google has put together another great feature filled site, in partnership with the League of Women Voters, that will help you find the nearest polling place. Check this list first to find out where and when to vote.

Vote411. Is a site that features tons of election information to help you prepare to make your choice. It also features a convenient poll finder.

Can I Vote? Not sure if you're registered to vote or not? Can I vote will help you to confirm whether or not you are in fact able to vote. If you're not showing up, most states will allow for provisional ballots to be cast when your name isn't on the voting roll.

Overseas Vote Foundation - A great help and resource site for Americans living or traveling outside of the United States during Election Day 2008.

Pew Center on the States - is a site that has information on poll opening and closing times.

Go vote Absentee - This site prepares you to cast an absentee ballot if you're traveling within the United States.

Brennan Center for Justice - is an organization that provides voting information for Students.

Election Protection - Is a wonderful website that monitors voting problems, errors, voting machine malfunctions, etc. Be sure to report and track all issues as they happen. Make sure your vote is count. If we allow voting fraud to creep into our society, we may wake up one day and realize we've lost our democracy. Also you can report issues by calling:

1-866-Our-Vote (1-866-687-8683)

And remember - if you don't vote - you will have no voice to complain later on. You will not be able to say a word. Imagine what the world would be like today, if Bush had never been President.

Now imagine if you could've been the deciding vote, but chose to stay home instead.
