You’ve heard the cries for reform. You’ve seen the pleas for change. From every newspaper to TV spot to online headline, this election is being billed as one of the most important in years. With unemployment, foreign policy, and the economy at the forefront, that billing may not be too far off. Ever since Barack Obama took office back in January of 2009, the campaign for 2012 was underway. Now after weeks, months, and even years of waiting, Decision 2012 is finally upon us. After the day’s end, we will no doubt get a better sense of the direction our country is headed over the next four years. And once again, we have the luxury of turning to social media to continuously keep us in “the know” throughout this historic day. Here is a list of helpful apps to keep you informed and engaged until the ballots are officially closed.
 
Get out and vote! You can talk about the issues all you want, but voting is this best way to put your viewpoints into action. VoterHub is a free iOS application that not only registers you to vote (although you probably should have done that by now), but gives you nearby locations to punch your ballot.
 
Track the election down to the last minute. You don’t have to turn on CNN or Fox News to see who’s ahead in the race. PollTracker follows the election in real-time, even sending you push notifications to keep you up-to-the-minute. Keep track of crucial swing-states and even your own local races.
 
The official Romney/Obama apps. Whether you’re liberal or conservative, democrat or republican, the official apps for each party are great places to find breaking news, nearby campaign events, and learn a little more about each candidate before decision time is here.
 
Read all about it! In any election, a reputable and objective news source is always a sough-after hub for all your election needs. The free app for the Washington Post will no doubt offer engaging stories on this critical day. For a more election-oriented news app, check out the free NYTimes Election 2012.
 
So what are you waiting for? Get out and vote!
