Let's Talk About Something Else
Most of us have voted already. What's left to do?
• Track your ballot. Contact your local election officials and make sure your vote is being counted.
• Make a last-push campaign contribution to support a candidate who's important to you.
• Contact friends and family in the US and encourage them to mail in their vote or go to the polls. (Let me be clear, Bro—to cast your ballot, not to patrol.)
Now, let's talk about something else.

They’ve directed their followers and their fans and their viewers to vote.” —Chantel Jennings on Hang Up and Listen (at 47:00 mark)
