...also, know the rules for your state and don't allow yourselves to be lied to by anyone. Voting does not take place on November 5th.
Make sure you know what's going on if your voting place has electronic voting machines; these things have been switching votes.
The following link has 8 really helpful tips to help your voting process easy, no matter who you're voting for.

*EDIT: Here are 3 very important points from that web address that I sited above.
"5. Find out what kind of voting machines are in your county.
Different states are using different voting systems, some for the first time. Find out what kinds of machines are being used in your state and county at Verifiedvoting.org. They can vary from county to county. The site's "verifier" tool also has contact information for county election officials -- names and numbers -- below the county voting machine information.
6. Find out what problems exist in your state.
There are many ways to find out what is happening in your state or county with voting, both before Election Day and on Election Day.
The election protection wiki site has an interactive map with the latest problems in your state. The VotersUnite.org Web site also has the latest election news by state where you can see if there are issues that might affect you, and it has a voting problems database that is searchable.
7. Call a lawyer if you experience problems while voting.
Voters should first ask poll workers for help if they experience a problem voting. If you make a mistake on a paper ballot, ask for anther ballot. If an electronic machine does not work, ask to use another machine or for a backup paper ballot. At most polling places there will a representative from the major political parties. Ask who they are if your problem isn't being solved.
In the meantime, there are several state-of-the-art hot lines that will help any voter. The biggest is 1-866-OUR-VOTE (administered by the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law) and 1-888-Ve-Y-Vota (administered by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Educational Fund). These hot lines have legal staff that will answer questions in real time and give advice, regardless of political affiliation. They have 10,000 volunteer lawyers who will answer questions, log problems and take legal action if necessary. These election protection calls and problems are mapped at ourvotelive.org.
Another hot line that records people's complaints and then forwards the messages to local election offices and civil rights lawyers is 866-MY-VOTE-1. This service works with many AM radio stations targeting minority communities. Its toll-free number provides polling location information, registers and audio-archives voter complaints, and connects voters with election administration officials in an automated environment.
Remember when calling a hot line to leave your name and contact information. Voting rights attorneys can't follow up if they don't have that information."
