There's a lot of static out there about voting laws this year. That's why it is important to know your state voting laws and procedures. Over at FindLaw, there is a handy page that has links to all of the states' voting laws. This is very important. The day you show up to vote is not the time to be figuring all of this out. Do it NOW. Double check, even if you have voted before. There are issues with lists being purged, etc., and you need to make sure everything is in order.
Also, if you live in an early voting state, head to the polls before election day. It will help ease the lines, and help ensure that everyone who wants to vote (and is properly registered) gets a chance. I'm planning on going tomorrow.
This year is supposed to see high voter turnout. So, do what you can to make sure that your vote counts.
