After a long and exhausting presidential election, the end is finally in sight. With Election Day now less than a week away, it's time for voters to get ready to head to the polls on Nov. 8 and make their choice between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or a third-party candidate.

Know the specific polling hours for your state

Though many Americans have already cast their ballot through early voting or absentee ballots, most will still be going to the polls in person on Tuesday. With election guidelines varying from state to state, however, it's important for voters to know what the specific polling hours are for the state in which they're registered.
