I did a brief interview for my local public access equivalent last night on the facts about today's election (starts around 8:15 in this YouTube clip):

So you have just over eight hours left to motivate yourself to the polls. If you are in Minnesota's Eighth Congressional district, please vote for our candidate, former Congressman Rick Nolan as he has the best shot at retaking the district from Chip Cravaack.

9:36 AM PT: Here is a direct link to the Pollfinder from the MN Secretary of State

1:48 PM PT: I was voter number 20 in Port Hope TWP today, and have made it into the DFL office in Bemidji, and called through two sheets of the GOTV call lists... come in and help out, if you would like!

2:31 PM PT: Report now there were 150 voters so far in W-3 in Bemidji - about 7% turnout so far (of course that is not a MN-08 precinct - it is in the uncontested 7th CD, but where there is a non-partisan mayor's race, and where people might have seen the Upstream TV show).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
