There are way too many events today for me to post separately.

This is a trial run of what we will do tonight starting at 6 p.m. Eastern, which is a Twitter feed using accounts I selected for today, together with a WordPress “live” feed for me and the other Authors to update (once we reach a certain critical mass of updates, you should be able to scroll through. (I’m also exploring Scribble Live, so we may use that tonight.).

READERS CAN POST COMMENTS as usual in the comment section.

I will probably leave this “sticky” at the top for a while.

Let me know what you think.

VIRGINIA: 46k absentee ballots issued, but not returned. 41% of those were from age 18-25 voters (they went 63-34 for Obama in 2008).

Voted in about 15 mins total, no line but plenty of people coming and going. The poll guy said that they were slammed early this morning when the polls opened. I imagine they will be again when people start getting off work.

All of the signage was Romney/Ryan and Connie Mack #FLsen (as well as many local GOP candidates), and I heard a man tell his companion that they’d probably be “kicked out for voting for Obama.” Maybe not kicked out, but pitied.

We have reporters on the ground in MO and from their account and many, many others, turnout is MASSIVE.

Just returned from the polls in a Northeast Suburb of Atlanta. Very light turnout. About 20 minutes to do the whole thing. There may be long lines elsewhere in the country but from what I’ve heard around here the turnout is pretty light with the exception the early morning voters.

@JakeSherman @BuzzFeedAndrew that Ohio is awfully close, the margin is much closer than the public polls statewide suggested.

Worry about Philadephia — Drudge has links to Republican poll watchers being kicked out, then reinstated by a judge.

Illinois voters have surprised with a third ballot initiative that no one knew about to amend the US Constitution. It reads: “Should the United States Constitution be amended to clearly state that only individual persons, and not corporations, associations or any other organizational entities, are entitled to the rights enumerated in the Constitution?” and many are concerned this is an attack on Churches and their religious liberty. Where was the media to cover this?
