To all my American readers, Happy Election Day!
As a political science teacher, this is basically my version of Christmas. I plan to stay up until the wee hours of the morning, obsessing over every exit poll and generally driving my husband crazy. I normally try to avoid talking extensively about political stuff with him, but I get a free pass on Election Day.

This link will help you find your polling place if you have any questions. Both of the campaigns have election lawyers, so if you ever feel like you were prevented from voting get in touch with them. Here is another source for legal help concerning any problems with voting. There have been so many crazy lawsuits surrounding voting, make sure you demand your right to vote. Even if you don't have the right I.D, you can usually still fill out a provisional ballet. I know there are plenty of misinformation attempts going on. I heard about a robo-call going out in Virginia that was telling people to vote on Thursday. Don't let stupid political games get in way of exercising your right to vote.
I really believe that voting is the gateway to more civic engagement. I sincerely hope that as many of my lovely readers as possible will get out and vote. I am not even going to mention my own political beliefs, I just want people to understand the wonderful privilege we have in open, free elections.
