That's great. Thank you Palo Alto Online! I just have to plug the Media Center, your local cable access station, where I happen to be employed and where I also put in some serious after hours volunteer time! We will be carrying National election coverage courtesy of Free Speech TV on Comcast Channel 28 from 5 - 11pm. And we will also be carrying local election updates as well on Comcast Channel 29. Both channels can also be watched via cablecast from our website: I'll be watching the Palo Online feed as well as the Media Center coverage as I am an election junky. Not gonna lie.

This is a great service, thanks.
I only get digital broadcast TV and the local stuff isn't on there much. (Cancelled the Comcast vampires and no regrets at all.)

The polling station in Ohlone school is not asking for any personal ids! Anybody can come and vote. Now why is that? Isn't it a gross violation?

Tsunami for the GOP/conservatives!

All I have to do is to look at Chris Matthews's body language on MSNBC.

Anyone know why we are getting phone calls on land lines for people who are not at home instead of using cell phone numbers? Particularly at this late stage, getting people to vote before they come home would be a better idea. Next time use cell phones all the time.

I am fed up picking up the phone for election calls.

Resident, most people bring in their voter pamphlet that has all their voting info on the cover.

No ID is required to vote. This your first time to the rodeo?

Wow, I'd think there should be a valid ID to show. Just don't link it to their voting "card".
