Millions of Americans are preparing to vote in the midterm elections on Tuesday, November 6. If you've already registered to vote and reviewed what's on your ballot, the only thing left to do is show up to the polls on Election Day and cast your vote. Before leaving your house, however, you may want to take advantage of one of the many online resources that make locating your specific polling place quick and easy.

Vote.org's Polling Place Locator is a straightforward tool available to all registered votes. Just enter your home address and it will bring up the location of your polling place along with the hours it's open and a link to directions through Google Maps. Vote.org also maintains a database of each state's polling places, if you'd rather look up where to vote that way.

An even simpler way to find your local polling place is to Google it. After entering "Where do I vote" into the search engine, Google will display a bar at the top of the page where you can input your address. And if you've already saved your home address in Google Maps, you can select "Home" to bring up the location of your polling place.

Depending on where you live, you may need to make a few last-minute preparations before casting your vote. Head over to USA.gov to see if your state requires you to show an ID before voting, and if so, which forms of identification are accepted. And if you need to leave work to vote, you'll want to check if you live in one of the 22 states that guarantees workers paid time off on Election Day.

The late Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a devout champion for feminism and civil rights, and her influence stretched from the halls of the Supreme Court to the forefront of popular culture, where she affectionately became known as the Notorious RBG. Though there are plenty of public tributes planned for Ginsburg in the wake of her passing, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has a new RBG bobblehead ($25) available for pre-order so you can honor her in your own home.

There are two versions of the bobblehead available, one of Ginsburg smiling and another with a more serious expression. Not only do the bobbleheads feature her in her Supreme Court black robe, but eagle-eyed fans will see she is wearing one for her iconic coded collars and her classic earrings.

RBG is far from the only American icon bobblehead that the Hall of Fame store has produced in such minute detail. They also have bobbleheads of Abraham Lincoln ($30), Theodore Roosevelt ($30), Alexander Hamilton ($30), and dozens of others.
