At Shine, we've been talking about the many dramatic, inspiring, humorous and flat-out entertaining campaign efforts.

But most importantly, we want to make sure that your voices are heard. And that every single vote counts.

Scroll through our checklist to ensure that you're in prime voting form before you head to the polls on Tuesday.

  • Do you know where your polling place is located? On Election Day, there is nothing worse than going to a polling place and finding out you can't vote because you're at the wrong location. Before you head out the door to vote, confirm your polling place. You can use Yahoo's nifty polling place tool to find out if you're headed in the right direction.
  • Do you have your identification card/driver's license with you? If you're a first-time voter, you'll definitely be asked to show some identification at the polls. But just to be safe, everyone should bring a form of ID.
  • Can you carpool or walk to your polling place? It's a big day and you want to get to your polling place in a hurry. But you can still be eco-friendly in the process. Go vote with a friend or family member and spare the air.
