Every four years, Americans get the pleasure of choosing who the next President of the United States will be. Obama has been the President for the last eight years, but now Americans have to pick a new one on Election Day, which is November 8th. At least after Election Day, some of the campaign commercials will be done!
To find your local polling place, go to RockTheVote.org. Don't worry if you are not registered - in Iowa you can vote the same day you register! You can find more information here.
Here are some resources located in the library if you want more information about the history of Election Day, articles about the recent candidates, and how voting affects the U.S.
