I'm watching the election with bated breath, of course: voted weeks ago from here in Tokyo. Will be doing weekend GOTV calls right up till the final day, which I took off (we're a day ahead of you guys here).
re: voter protection: you know the Republicans will try to do even more damage than they already have. And the following two posts had lots of really helpful information for combating voter intimidation. But it was a bit hard to share all that info via social media, so I've made a series of tweets to copy and paste.
