The cap should be marked with a (-) or (+) sign.  Seems like now-a-days Electrolytic caps have a (-) sign inside a hollow arrow pointing at the Negative lead.  Some do have a (+) tho, pointing at the positive lead.

Disk Type caps don't have polarity (like .001 or .0047 values)

The longer lead is always connected to the more positive terminal.
