When it comes to elections and voting, there's a lot of information out there—and not all of it is factual or correct. Last-minute attack ads can distort the truth. Your friends and neighbors might even spread rumors they heard from their cousin's best friend's husband. And so on.

Voter turnout has been high—but that doesn't mean your vote doesn't or won't matter!

And you have until 8pm Tuesday to get your ballot into an official drop box. Don't put it in the mail. It's way too late for that.

Here's more stuff you should know, right from the Secretary of State's office.
