The day is upon us. After months of the endless stream of radio, TV, online and print ads and social media posts that may have cost you a few friendships, Election Day is finally here. Regardless of which candidate or political party you prefer, voting is a very important right granted to every American. But the voting process can be confusing--I'm here to simplify it a bit.

There are multiple polling places in your community where you can cast your ballot. Visit the Iowa Secretary of State's website, enter your zip code followed by your home address to locate the nearest precinct. And, for the general election, polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m.

Hopefully, this answered any questions you may have had about the voting process in Iowa. Get out and vote! #USA
