Handy election day links

November 7, 2016

Tuesday, November 8, is Election Day! While the FEC's mission relates solely to the financing of federal elections, we often get questions about other election-related topics, such as:

  • Where do I vote?
  • How late are the polls open?
  • How do I report voter fraud and intimidation?
  • How does the electoral college work?

As a public service, the FEC's Information Division has developed and posted a handy list of non-FEC-related questions it typically receives on Election Day with links to the federal and state agencies that can answer those questions. Visit the Election Day Links page.
