It’s today! It’s the midterm elections. So many of us have been waiting for this day with cautious hope, and some of us with emotions related to anxiety, or excitement, or the emotion of constantly texting our friends and relatives about voting. Now it’s here! Maybe you’ve prepared for this day by reading our midterm voting guide to LGBTQ candidates; maybe there’s a local candidate, race or issue with national implications in your region. Maybe you’re just excited about the possibility of flipping House seats! Here’s how to find your polling place through Vote.org; here are guidelines on voter registration state by state; your state may offer day-of voter registration at the polls!
Maybe you’ve voted early; maybe you’re voting today! Maybe you can’t vote in the US, and you’re here to participate vicariously. Maybe you live outside the US but our elections inevitably impact you and you want to know what the heck is going on! Regardless, come hang out and let us know what’s on your mind. How did your voting experience go? Are you watching the numbers come in? What local ballot measures or seats are you paying most attention to? Did you get a sticker? Show us!! I’ll be here more or less all day to commiserate and wait for results with you. Here’s the NYT official Calm Place; no reason just sharing!!! Fingers crossed!
