Election Day is finally here, and unfortunately it’s not a national holiday so you still have to go to work or pick the kids up from school or any number of routine activities that take up precious time you might need to get to your polling station.

We thought we’d put together a quick list of when every state’s polls close, just so you can be sure to get there in time.

Remember: As long as you’re in line before the official closing time, they have to let you vote.
