The US presidential election is just one day away. As always, the country can get pretty involved and the subject takes over media coverage.

But the landscape is changing, while the 2008 election was the first that made it clear that ignoring the internet was a bad idea, the 2012 one has showed that the web is an important part of the process now.

Because of that or maybe to prove that, YouTube is asking people to get involved and upload election-themed videos to the site, no matter the subject.

"We want to see and hear from you tomorrow. Whether you’re vlogging about which candidate you support, capturing footage of the long line at your polling place, or encouraging your friends to get out of the house and go vote, we’re inviting you to send us your Election Day videos," YouTube wrote.

Note though that YouTube is not encouraging you to take a camera with you to the voting stations, if that's not allowed where you live.

Still, if you think you've shot something interesting, you can get YouTube to feature the video on its Election Hub page, just tweet them to @YouTubePolitics or include the hashtag #YouTubePolitics in the video's title.
