Polls will open on the East Coast as early as 6am EST and the final polls will close in Alaska at 9pm AKST (1am EST). Depending on how close certain elections are, this could make for a very late evening. Note: This is specifically for state polls. US territories have different poll times.
Over on reddit, /r/politics is hosting a couple of Reddit Live threads today. The first thread will be the highlights of today and will be moderated by them personally. The second thread will be hosted by them with the assistance of a variety of guest contributors. This second thread will be much heavier commentary, busier and more in-depth. So pick your poison and follow along with us here and on reddit!
IMPORTANT: VOTER INTIMIDATION IS ILLEGAL
If you see something, or experience something that makes you uncomfortable, speak up and video tape it if you feel it is necessary/safe to do so. Do not allow yourself to get into an exchange with an intimidator which may ultimately jeopardize your own right to vote. Federal resources are available to fight voter intimidation:
- Contact the election crimes division at your local FBI field offices.
- Also, file a report with the DoJ's Civil Rights division:
- Toll-free - (800) 253-3931 // Telephone - (202) 307-2767
You may also call the local police if you feel it is appropriate to do so.
Thank you once again to the moderators and users of r/politics for putting this together so I could rip it off and post it here with relative ease.
