Stanley Nelson‘s Firelight Media partnered with the Advancement Project in videotaping real people who stood up for their right to vote. Tuesday, November 6 is the last and official day to vote in the U.S. for the 2012 election.
Here are some handy resources for the polls if you’re getting any static:
• 1-800-311-8683 Voter Help Line set up by the Democratic Party
• 1-866-MYVOTE1 (866-698-6831)
• 1-866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683)
• 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA (en Español)
To find your poll, go to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission: http://www.eac.gov/voter_resources/contact_your_state.aspx
Best to take no fewer than two id’s including one with a photo (check state rules on the link above). Anticipate a wait. Bring comfort supplies. Ignore obnoxious poll watchers. Report obnoxious poll watchers or any other harrassment at the polls.
The presidential election has been a cash cow for commercial media outlets, polling firms, and pundits. But why am I hearing two narratives in the Republican camp: If Romney wins; If he loses. Has the Obama camp put a gag order on the “L” word?
Or is it really that close?
Quote of the day:
“If I hear anybody say it was because Romney wasn’t conservative enough I’m going to go nuts. We’re not losing 95 percent of African-Americans and two-thirds of Hispanics and voters under 30 because we’re not being hard-ass enough.”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
