I believe Obama is going to win, but Tuesday is going to be nasty everywhere. You are going to see the Republicans doing what they always do try to scare us from voting. Do not be scared instead be active. Here is what you can do to help if you are able to on Tuesday go to the polls to distract the Republican Operatives.

What I mean by that is on election Day if you see Republicans trying to pass on information or if they come to your door trying to pass information do not ignore them instead Engage them. The longer you can keep the Republican there talking to you the less time they have to try to talk to other people. Another thing you can do is watch out for the Handicap. If you see Republicans challenging handicap people or anyone go help stand up for them. Do not be afraid instead stick together and lets protect our people who are voting Obama by not being scared.

The news itself is going to be one of reaction and chain events. The Media wants to call it on election night which should be illegal. If we had a proper Election the media would not be able to call anything till Alaska closes it's poll. I believe they are the last one to vote. Chuck Todd was giddy last night on trying to declare which states to call early in the night. DO NOT let the media get to you VOTE!

This is also one of the first elections that the Media is actually being forced to cover the Republican voter suppression. Be sure to be visual when it comes to Election day bring a phone or Camera with you to Record Republican activity. We do not want things to go wrong, but all of us can be eyes on the ground to contact the Obama camp of where to send people.

If you fear doing things like this to monitor the activity of Republicans remember MSNBC was already reporting that Republicans want to send people to challenge the vote. As a Concern Citizen yourself you can go and keep watch on these Republicans and alert the Obama camp of what is going on. It is our job to not cause a issue, but instead we need to not back down when it comes to Republicans dirty trick.

Another thing if you live in a state effected by the recent hurricane I know that it is tough right now and a lot have their hands full on rebuilding their lives, but we need you to watch and see if polling places are being set up correctly. Know that the Federal government has said that it will step in and cover any need to help in area's effected by the hurricane. The problem is if the area doesn't request it then the Government does not know. That is why we need eyes on the ground.

This isn't just about voting, but instead protecting our very right to vote. Tuesday is going to be a nasty election. The News will want to make it a reality sports show and the Republicans will do everything possible to SCARE people from voting. We who have Voted need to still be active in protecting the rights of others to vote. Remember you maybe the one who helps set that one vote over the top for Obama to win that state. This is one way we all can help out on election day instead of just being at home watching the news and waiting nervously we can turn that energy into something positive.

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.
