Election Day 2012

What arguably seems like the longest campaign season in history has finally come to an end. It’s election day! Time to get out and exercise your civic duty by voting on the next President of the United States, as well as state and local representatives and policies. With the fallout of Hurricane Sandy putting the spotlight on our nation’s reliance on gasoline, America’s energy future may be a topic on many voters’ minds as they enter the polls.

One thing’s for certain: I think we all know it’s going to be all-election news all the time today. Luckily, there are many interesting interactive activities to keep you occupied and plugged-in to this national event. The Wall Street Journal is asking readers to share their election-day photos on Instagram or Twitter by using hashtag #WSJvote. More of a video person? YouTube wants your election-day videos, too! You can post them on YouTube, tweet them to @YouTubePolitics or include #YouTubePolitics in the video title.

USA Today has an Electoral Vote Tracker tool that allows you to craft various routes to victory for each candidate. CNET provides a roundup of three election-day apps to help you stay on top the the latest developments–or, in some cases, just offers a roleplaying game that “pits Obama and Romney in a virtual slugfest.” Facebook is also gearing up for an election day “blitz” of features, which will include sending out messages to users’ smartphones and showing a real-time map of their voting activity.

Perhaps you want to go the other way; you’ve voted early and you want to avoid all election activity. The Washington Post has you covered with eight ways to escape election day insanity.

If you haven’t voted yet, it’s easier than ever to educate yourself beforehand by checking your local newspaper’s website or visiting Vote411.org from the League of Women Voters. This helpful site offers personalized voting information, including a handy guide that outlines all the issues at hand, even tailored to your local community. Happy voting!
