I've got more pictures, but I want to see if this works before I put any more in here.
I took a vacation day tomorrow to work on GOTV with one of our local volunteer offices and I've been making phone calls tonight from the Dashboard.
Hoping that all goes well and we don't end up with another recount debacle - bad enough we're already having crazy issues with voter suppression and intimidation.
