It's decision time: Get your vote on!

And we're off! It's Election Day in America and we hope that if you haven't already, you'll be headed to the polls today to cast your vote for president as well as for your local officials and issues.

The first votes were cast very early this morning in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire.  The polls there have opened shortly after midnight each Election Day since 1960 - but today's tie was the first in its history. President Barack Obama got five votes, as did Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.  Is it a sign of how the rest of the day will go?

To help you along a bit we have some helpful tools, some fun interactives and even a chance for you to show us how you've exercised your civic duty with CNN's 'I'm Voting' app.  Send us an iReport, tweet or post a photo on Instagram with #ivotedcnn .   Share a photo of yourself with your voting sticker and you could be part of CNN's election coverage and be pictured on's homepage on the biggest political day of the year.

And if you still aren't sure where to vote, there's no excuse now. We've got a tool to find out who's on your ballot and the location of your local polling place, thanks to a partnership with Google.

So get out there, vote! And before all the results come rushing in tonight, see if you can correctly predict the election outcome with our Election calculator.

And whatever you do, before it's all over - don't miss your chance to relive the best moments of the campaign in just 120 seconds.

    I wish I was off work tomorrow. I have a very bad sinus headache and sure feel the need for vodka. It was a terrible day. Yep.

    I think it's time to retire Wolf Blitzer. Every time John King would mention an area within a state, Wolf would send it to the CNN reporter in that state. 1st time was OK – 2nd thru the 10th times were not fun. Let King go ahead and finish his analysis. Maybe it was the director or producers fault – whatever the case, I hope that strategy changes before the next presidential election. which, by the way, will be won by Marco Rubio.

    FINALLY!! IT'S OVER! Hope the "balme game, finger pointing" will stop. This is NOW Obama's future legacy, TOTALLY!! Hope that our "elected children" will now work together to help US & OUR country! Opps, mayby I am hoping for to much? Boehner has already stated that "comprimise is not an option". IF this is true then he should be replaced IMMEDIATELY!! WE have many problems to get fixed, repaired, BUT this smaks of defeatism, and the heck with US!! IF ALL of these people do not come to their sense's and start working together then we are in even more trouble, and Obama's history will be that of a failed presidency! IF the republicans REMAIN the party of NO, then I see them relegated to history and the 2 parties will become democrat & independent!
