  • Oh, hey, did you know there's an election today? Yup. And we've got all the info you need to know.

    Need to find out where to vote? Having trouble at the polls? Here is some help.

    Daily Kos Elections has the low down on all the key races to follow today, as well as all poll closing times.

    And as soon as the polls start closing, of course we'll be liveblogging all the fun, right here at Daily Kos and at Daily Kos Elections.

  • Very Serious TV Journalists who do Very Serious Journamalism are going to try something new and exciting—not leaking exit poll results before the polls actually close:
    U.S. television networks face a new challenge in covering this year's excruciatingly close presidential election: prevent closely guarded exit poll results from leaking onto Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms.

    The major TV news networks agreed to shield early exit poll data suggesting who is leading in a state until the state's polls close. That means no tweeting exit polls, posting on Facebook, or re-tweeting figures reported by others.

  • A must-click recap of Lady-Americans in this election.
  • Care about LGBT rights? Here's a list of 14 must-watch races:
    Voters Wisconsin will be deciding whether to send the first out LGBT person to the Senate in Rep. Tammy Baldwin's race against former Gov. Tommy Thompson. In the House, voters could be sending an unprecedented number of out LGBT people to Congress — including Richard Tisei, who would be the first LGBT Republican to have been elected as an out official from his first term. Then, there are the ballot measures on marriage equality issues and more.
  • Please note:

    Okay, so maybe I added that last part.

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.
