Today is the final day to make your voice heard by voting on national, state, and local ballots. To help you get out to vote, our @gov team compiled a list of Twitter accounts for each state’s Secretary of State (the office that oversees elections) as well as other relevant accounts offering voter information. From here you can check for updated information about your polling place, learn about what’s on your ballot, and find certified election results.
The polls in Virginia open at 6am and close at 7pm. All voters in line when the polls close may vote. sbe.virginia.gov

After all the ballots are cast, the long campaign season will conclude as results at the local, state and national level are announced across the country. On Twitter, you can connect with everything from predictions and tabulations to analysis and punditry, as well as rea-time results as they are announced. To showcase relevant and engaging Tweets from political insiders and voters alike, we’ve created a special election event page at Twitter.com/#Election2012.
After seeing 10 million Tweets during the first presidential debate, we expect today to be another record-setting day. Besides the event page, which will feature curated Tweets, we’ll be tweeting updates and data all day and evening at @gov about the election conversation on Twitter.
#ivoted already. How about you?
