Voted yet? Facebook wants to help you prepare for US voting and Google will help you find your polling place

If you are eligible to vote in the US election, and haven't voted yet (why not?), Facebook has a site where you can get information on both state and federal elections, and plan your vote.

Thanks to data gathered from election officials by the nonpartisan Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), we can present you with a preview of the ballot you’ll receive on November 8. If you notice an issue with the CTCL data, we’ve built in a way for you to provide feedback and help correct the dataset.

Facebook’s vote planner is tailor-made for you. You can preview the races and issues you’ll see on your ballot, learn more about the candidates and their positions, then email yourself your choices for later reference.

Not sure where your polling place is? Google wants to help.

Search "where to vote" to get to the polling place location finder.

You can also search for "who's on my ballot" to get local ballot information.

And if your state has early voting, vote now! That means no lines and reduces the chance of last minute snafus.

I've already voted by mail, and confirmed my ballot was received, so I know I'm good.

If you are in California, here's how you check to see if your vote by mail ballot has been received:
