Election Day links[edit]

These links, courtesy of the FEC, might be helpful while editing this article:

Tuesday, November 7, 2006, is Election Day. For your convenience, the Federal Election Commission has compiled the following frequently asked Election Day questions with links to the relevant sources of information. Please bear in mind that, while the FEC administers the federal campaign finance laws, it has no jurisdiction over the laws relating to voting, voter fraud and intimidation or election results. Inquiries concerning these topics should be directed to the federal and state agencies identified below.

Where Do I Vote?[edit]

Contact your local county or city board of elections (in the blue/government pages of your local phone book). The National Association of Secretaries of State offers canivote.org, a web site designed to assist voters with questions about polling locations and voter registration and link them to their local election office's web site.

How Late are the Polls Open?[edit]

The National Association of Secretaries of State has prepared this list of poll hours for all 50 states [PDF].

Which Candidates Are on the Ballot in My State?[edit]

Ballot access is controlled by each state according to state law, even for federal elections. Contact your state's main election office for the official ballot listing in your jurisdiction.

Who Won the Election?[edit]

For election results, contact your state's main election office.

Election night coverage[edit]

I moved some of the copy from the story on the polls opening to this story so that it could become the more current story. The focus of the other story was that voting had started; the focus of this one is the results of that voting. Steven shelton 02:39, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
