This election guide will give you the information you need to get to the right place at the right time to cast your ballot for your preferred candidates on Tuesday, Aug. 14. There are five polling places in Hudson and they're all open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

VOTER ID

While the Voter ID law had taken effect and impacted the primary races in February, an injunction has put the requirement that voters show identification on hold. Voters who are registering at their polling place will be asked for a current photo ID or other document showing proof of residence. All voters will be required to sign in to the voter roll book when they arrive at the polls.

ON THE BALLOT

Voters will be asked to designate their party preference. If you designate a party preference, only votes cast for that party will be counted. If you do not designate a party preference and vote for candidates of more than one party, no votes will be counted. Choices on the ballot include Republican, Democratic, Constitution and Americans Elect parties, but there are only Republican and Democratic candidates on the ballot.

The only contested race on the ballot is for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. All primary winners will advance to the Nov. 6, 2012, general election, which also will be a presidential election.
