Since tomorrow is Election Day, I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to vote. The decisions made tomorrow will affect all of our daily lives and futures, and you have the opportunity to have a say in these decisions. That being said, please also take a moment to educate yourself about the candidates and issues at stake in this election:

Project VoteSmart, a nonpartisan nonprofit voter-education organization, has excellent and easily-accessible information about all of the candidates in this election (including those running at the local level). By far, this is one of the best voting resources out there.

Vote411 also provides nonpartisan voting information at all levels. These voting guides are compiled by the League of Women Voters, a nonprofit, nonpartisan political organization that supports voter education. (Click here for LWV 2012 Arizona ballot guide)

For Arizona voters: click here for this year's ballot guide (issued by the state of Arizona). 

For everyone: find your polling place using Google

Rock the Vote's Election Center has some helpful voting information for all 50 states

To see the candidates' stances on extreme poverty and preventable disease, click here

Finally, one of the most poignant articles about tomorrow's election I've seen, from the BBC

Please take a moment to research your options and vote in tomorrow's election.
