T minus 5 hours til my polls close - where do I go??

Election day panic! My driver's license address points me to one precinct in Broward County, FL. The address where I am actually registered to vote is at another precinct in the same county. Where do I go? If I go to where I'm registered and my license is at an address in a different city, will they turn me away? On hold with my county's Supervisor of Elections for 15:06 at this point.

How anonymous is my vote?

I'll make this super-simple: how anonymous is your vote in the United States? I'm currently working for a progressive-oriented group that does lot of work with Democratic politicians/figures - but I'm considering voting third-party in this year's presidential election. [more inside]

I just moved within the same county, can I still vote? (Colorado)

I was registered to vote in Weld county in 2008. Earlier this month I moved a few miles away to a town that happens to be in Weld county (Firestone, Co to Frederick, Co). Can I still vote in the 2012 election? Do I need to change any information before I vote?

Voting turnout in different countries

“A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote in a national election” Why is there an apparent apathy of political participation in America, and to extend it a bit, how come voting turn-out is higher in some countries in others even if the countries in comparison are both recognized liberal democracies?

Is it legal for a candidate to have access to ballots after the election?

I just found out my local representative (who runs unopposed every year) looks at the write-in names under his on the ballots and then hires a private detective to investigate all of the people named in the write in line of the ballot. This sounds illegal to me as I'm pretty sure candidates shouldn't be looking at actual ballots. Aren't they supposed to be counted by the computers or poll workers?

Voting remotely

We've recently moved from one Australian state (NT) to another Australian state (Tasmania), and have neglected to update our voting registration details. Aware that an election is about to take place in the NT, I started looking into changing my voter registration, only to discover that the election is happening this Saturday, and it's probably too late for the change to take effect! Am I likely to get into trouble for going to the electoral office in Hobart to vote in the NT election, given that while I remain on the electoral roll in the NT, my actual residence is now in Tasmania? Or should I just send in the voter registration change-of-address forms as quickly as possible and hope for the best?

Voting Parties

In Wisconsin, you don't have to declare a party in order to vote in the primary, which has me wondering, since George W. Bush is a lock on the republican side, why don't republicans vote in the democratic party for the person they think is the least likely to win?
