Does anyone know of any good free software for designing simple electrical diagrams?

If you mean schematics and boards, a lot of people here use the free / light version of Eagle:

Good luck!

Keep in mind that "good" and "free" don't always work together.

KiCad is open source.  The free version of Eagle is limited to 2 layers and 100mm x 80mm boards.

expresspcb.com is really handy for drawing up simple things for discussions.

Eagle from cadsoft for designing boards.

I use both, depending on what I am doing.
