Happy Halloween to all our C&L readers!
It's generally a bad idea to read the polls, but when there's a tight race and your vote could make a difference, we'll let you make an exception. I'm talking to YOU, Georgia voters. The only polls we should be counting on are the ones where we vote!
Most polls have show Kemp up a point or 2. This one has Abrams up a point with a runoff looming. https://t.co/ZXIKkrponZ

I know! Let's ask @nick_clegg. Nick, Facebook's new transparency rules do not work, do they? Just admit it. It's a disaster. America is days aways from the polls....and Vice reporters posed as 100 US senators. And had ads accepted from them all. https://t.co/AbjMCuyh0j

My parents DID meet in line at the polls. And one election day when I was a teen we came home to 20 red roses for my mom & she asked my dad “what did you do?” (he was not a flowers guy) & he was like “it’s the 20th anniversary of the day we met.” THIS CAN BE YOU, SINGLE VOTERS.↓ Story continues below ↓

Well over 200,000 people who have NEVER voted in any election before now have already cast a ballot in Texas. The state with the second highest number of first time voters, CA, has only 78,000. Keep that in mind as you assess the polls in Texas.
