We’re tracking this right now on our voting-problems map.
Remember- as long as you go to the right voting location for your CURRENT address you have the right to vote NO MATTER WHAT.
Don’t let them tell you otherwise! Bring your ID, your proof of address, and other documentation (if required); then if you are told there is a problem, request a PROVISIONAL BALLOT. They have to let you fill one out, and they give you a receipt so you can look it up and make sure that your vote counted.
Let me know if you have any issues or questions, I was a poll manager for 6 elections, so I know my stuff ;-)

Joss Whedon on Mitt Romney
I feel the shade coming through the screen
I am less than enamored of Joss Whedon as a person, but this is fucking perfect.
VOTER ALERT! If you live in AZ you need to check your forms - In the corner of the document, it says November 6th in English but in Spanish it reads 8 de Noviembre, the 8th of November.
Election day is November 6th, not November 8th. Please make sure to share this with everyone you know.
Because this is what voter suppression looks like

Also, can we get a Spanish translation of this to boost, too?
This is all you need to know about Mitt Romney.
My jaw dropped so violently when he said this that it popped.
Holy shit, I thought that was a parody of what he said. He actually said that? For real?
Paul Ryan’s Soup Kitchen Photo Op
According to The Washington Post:
Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, said that he was not contacted by the Romney campaign ahead of the Saturday morning visit by Ryan, who stopped by the soup kitchen after a town hall at Youngstown State University.
“We’re a faith-based organization; we are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations,” Antal said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. “It’s strictly in our bylaws not to do it. They showed up there, and they did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors.”
He added: “The photo-op they did wasn’t even accurate. He did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the dining hall.”
Wow, hey, so I am incredibly bothered by this.
Ten-year-old Nadia, whose mother and father were killed in a US drone strike on their house. (via Columbia Human Rights Clinic and the Center for Civilians in Conflict: Civilian Impact of Drones)
Remember Malala, but remember Nadia too. Ten years old. A drone struck her home killing her parents. In other words, remember the violence of the Taliban, but remember the violence of the American President, too.
This is so important especially after the incident involving Pakistani student Malala Yousafzai. I cannot stress upon on how dangerous the rhetoric around this event is considering how many have instantly resorted to support drone attacks. Journalist Urooj Zia states this simply: “Please, stop using the attack on Malala to justify drones. We’ve been ‘droned’ for years now, & freely. Are militants dead? No.”
Incidents like these need to be treated with caution and consideration by media given how the framing of a tragedy (especially a gendered tragedy) leads to the justification of foreign policies that, in the long run, prove to be highly detrimental.
Graphic on Pennsylvania’s voter ID law. Two observations:
1) Asked, but not required. Get the word out to your Pennsylvania people.
2) We’re pretty sure this Pa. voter ID campaign wasn’t actually started with “Nicholas Winkler” in mind.

That is officially the creepiest thing I’ve ever heard come out of an elected official’s mouth.
As if I didn’t have enough to write, I just stared a TobiasXRachelXAxXDavid fic with those four as a ‘strike team’ that Elfangor assembled to fight...
Was reading Emergency! fic and had a sudden thought. Gage needs to meet The Doctor and go on some adventures.
Snippet: In hindsight, Bruce really should have known.
i think writing jason todd being super uncomfortable is one of my favorite things to do
teenaged jay, siting next to the gray-ace guy he...
have you ever stopped liking somebody that you liked a lot and suddenly notice that they are a shitty person and realize how blinded...
So, those issues where Tim moves into the Manor after Jack dies, and he’d been living in Bludhaven for a while… I really didn’t like those issues...
