Election Day is here and it’s your last chance to make your voice heard in the 2018 general election.

The polls open at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday morning and will close at 8:00 p.m. The busiest times are before people go to work and after-work hours.

Unlike early voting, on Election Day voters must go to their designated polling place. Voters can find their polling station on the state’s Board of Election website. There, voters can find out where to vote by entering information based on their address.

There are a few rules to keep in mind before heading to the polls. First-time voters may be asked to present an ID and parents can bring one or two children under the age of 18 with them to vote.

Voters can take printed material in the voting booth.

For most of the younger voters, wait until after you leave the polling location to take a selfie and let your friends know you voted. No selfies are allowed inside.

Finally, if you participated in early voting, you can't vote on Election Day.
