It's one AM and a lot of state's have started counting absentee ballots already.
Some pundits are predicting a 60% turnout which, I believe, is extremely high for any election (maybe a record if it occurs?). It would be great to see a huge turnout but I'm skeptical.
I would just add that you should not let anything stop you from voting - weather, terrorist threats, or Michael Moore (see below).

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore plans to have hundreds of cameras outside polling places in Ohio and Florida on Election Day to watch for attempts to suppress voter turnout.
The director of the anti-Bush documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" announced Saturday that a total of 1,200 professional and nonprofessional cameramen, filmmakers and videographers will bring their cameras to polling places in the two presidential battleground states, especially in minority communities.
"I'm putting those who intend to suppress the vote on notice: Voter intimidation and suppression will not be tolerated," Moore said in a statement.
Moore, who was in Columbus for a rally Saturday night, planned visits to Ohio and Florida on Tuesday, his publicist Terri Hardesty said.
First of all, Moore himself is BLATANTLY trying to intimidate people with this ploy. No one will feel comfortable with that many cameras.
So what can you do?
- For every camera crew you see, get two people to film *them*. Watch the watchers. Make sure they aren't doing anything but passively recording the goings on.
- Bring a cell phone. If any camera crew tries anything, call the police.
- Get the numbers of your local election officials and put them on speed dial. Report any infraction, however small.
Do not let this man get away with anything. We know how despicable he can be. It's up to us to watch him and his camera crews. Spread the word. Email this post to everyone you know in any contested states. Let's mobilize and show Michael Moore where the real power lies.
In our hands. Not his.
