The national elections are obviously the reason most people are heading out to vote, and in some states the state elections are getting almost as much attention. But, in general, I think a lot of people are clueless about who they're supposed to be voting for tomorrow except for their preferred presidential candidate.

You should first check the website for your local board of elections. A quick Google search is fine for that: "________ county board of elections."

If your board of elections website is completely useless (or nonexistent), you should try Smart Voter by the League of Women Voters. It doesn't have information for all addresses, but at least they give you links to where you might be able to find the info if they don't have it. If they do have the info for your address, it seems to have a good listing of local elections.

When I looked up my address, it did give me a few irrelevant elections from nearby neighborhoods, but I think they're erring on the side of caution. They even had some state and local propositions that I had no idea about and probably would've stared blankly at when I got to those on the ballot.

Does anybody else have good resources for getting information about state and local elections? Please share!
