League of Women Voters has the Election Day info you need

It may not have the glamour, scandal or never-ending debate season of the run-up to next year’s vote, but Tuesday is Election Day 2011, and there’s plenty of business to take care of at the polls here in Texas.

From the mayoral election in Houston to 10 possible amendments to the Texas Constitution, there’s a lot at stake — and if you’re wondering where to vote, how to register, or what all the issues are about, the League of Women Voters’ Vote411.org is there to help.

They’ve posted their nonpartisan voter guides to help you out, too, in English and in Spanish.

And while the U.S. Department of Justice’s continues to consider approving Texas’ new voter ID law, the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas reminds that new photo identification requirements aren’t in effect for this year’s election — so nobody’s going to need to see your concealed carry license this time around. They’ve set up a voter protection hotline for anyone running into trouble or intimidation attempts at the polls, at 877-523-2792.

We’ll also be interested in any troubles you might run into at polling places, or attempts at intimidation. Let us know on Twitter, with the #votingproblems hashtag, or email us directly.
