Vote411.org (a polling place finder, resources on voting regs, candidates, ballot measures and more)
SmartVoter.org (by the League of Women Voters, with detailed information on polling locations, candidates and ballot initiatives)
CNNpolitics.com (for the political junkie: political resources and commentary; and a voter hotline to report issues with voting)
