Voter Game Plan
Everything you need as you prep for the November 8 General Election — study our interactive voter guides, ask questions, print your sample ballot and more.

Does voting ever feel like cramming for a test? Ever get to the polls and feel like you didn't finish your homework? Yeah, same here! Let's create your Voter Game Plan and get your ballot ready.

  • First, explore our voter guides to find out more about each race — what each elected official is responsible for, what makes a good candidate, who's running, and more. We’ve got all that for those confusing propositions, too.
  • Next, review the frequently asked questions from voters just like you on everything from what to do if your address has changed to why the U.S. Senator race is on your ballot twice. Still have a question? Look for that purple “Ask a question” button on any page and submit your question. We'll do our best to get you an answer!
  • Finally, fill out a virtual ballot, specific to your address, and then print it out as a handy reference as you complete your official ballot.

Ready? Let's do this!
