It's important that you register before your state's deadline.

Polling place locations can change, so check with your local election office, see http://www.usa.gov/Agencies/Local-Government/Cities.shtml , or use the League of Women Voters online search tool, http://www.vote411.org/enter-your-address?dest=voting-dossier#.UFm-5XEsmWQ to find out where and when to vote.
