Alaska, it's just about time to vote.

Here's what you need to know about voting in Alaska on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012.

Closing time for Alaska polls is 8 p.m. local time. While the majority of precincts are located in the Alaskan Time Zone, vote returns are not released for the state until the entire state votes, and a portion of it is an hour earlier in the Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone. Regardless of time zone though, 8 p.m. local time polls close.

Alaska polls opening time is 7 a.m. local time - again that goes for all time zones. Whatever your time zone, 7 a.m. your time is when polls open.

The state of Alaska does offer early voting, which began a few weeks ago, so some have already voted.

Not sure where to vote? The state of Alaska has a polling place location finder on its Division of Elections website.

Whoever wins Alaska in the presidential race receives three electoral votes. It has voted Republican in the past 10 presidential races. See our election map here.
