I received the following email worth noting and sharing, regarding what to do if you see voting problems today. Immediately call 877-868-3874... and you may need to, from the personal experiences shared below...

I’ve just come from fulfilling my civic duties (and
personal responsibility of getting Obama elected) in North Canton, Ohio. I’m
writing to let you know that I witnessed a few minor inconveniences at the
polls this morning that resulted in a few persons leaving without voting. When
I left, I immediately phoned the Voting Rights Institute of the Ohio Secretary
of State, Jennifer Brunner and spoke with her assistant regarding the issues.
They assured me that they would either phone or send someone out immediately to
rectify the situation so that no other persons would have to forfeit their
opportunity to vote – at least not for that particular reason.

I am writing to let you know that if you have also
experienced or witnessed anything questionable at your polling locations to
please make the call to 877-868-3874 so that the issue can be resolved today
before the polls close.

You never know in Ohio, it may come down to just these few
votes and you may have done your part to ensure Obama’s election! The
call only takes a few moments. In addition, you can also log your experience at
their website: – please keep in mind that the issues logged
here may not be addressed today.

Please forward this message to anyone you know who is voting
in Ohio today!

Choice of Weapon

Go armed with a camera, cell phone camera or better yet, video. Record the problem. Ironically, this month's issue of XXL features a cover showing the rapper/actor Ludacris holding a video camera over one eye like a gun, reminiscent of Gordon Parks' photographic choice of weapon, the camera.
