Find Your Polling Place Via Facebook

Can’t find that slip of paper telling you where to cast your vote in the presidential election Tuesday? Don’t worry, Facebook is here to help. An application on the U.S. Politics on Facebook page directs voters to their polling place, based on their address.

Facebook announced Monday that users can connect with the app — developed by Facebook, Microsoft, and the nonpartisan Voting Information Project — to find out where they can vote. The map includes information about polling places, as well as directions.
