Oh no it is election day

Here is a morning  Q&A for you.

Where do I vote?

Find your polling place at the Sec of State's website. 

Are you sure that is right?

Maybe! Some polling locations have moved. Take a look.

What do I do if I see some funny business going on?

Tell The Lens about it.

Who do I vote for?

Ha ha wrong question, rookie. Never ever vote FOR any of these clowns. It is helpful to know who to vote against, though.  For more information on that I recommend the always helpful Harm Reduction guide published by Antigravity Magazine. Also this year the New Orleans DSA published a voting guide that may be of some use as well.

Who is going to win?

In Louisiana there isn't a lot of drama in that regard. The local clerk of court races are interesting though and will be tight.  But that is a whole 'nother post. Nationally I think the Democrats are going to underperform but the odds are they will still just barely manage to take the House back. Of the high profile elections everyone is talking about I think Stacey Abrams has the best chance to win in the Georgia Governor's race. I would love to see Betomania pay off in Texas but I don't think that is happening.  At least, I didn't think so before I saw the reports that Ted Cruz's ship might be on the way to take him back to his home planet.

Okay but is there anything on this ballot I can really get behind?

It probably doesn't need much help since everybody is endorsing it, but Amendment 2 would get rid of our stupid racist non-unanimous jury law so you should vote for that.

Is there a song that might help me get fired up, though?
