It's Election Day in America

After almost two years of campaigning, it all comes down to this.

Published November 4, 2008 2:10PM (EST)

Polls have already opened in much of the country as I write this, and both Barack Obama and Joe Biden have already voted. (John McCain and Sarah Palin will be voting in a couple hours.) After a campaign that seemed to begin in earnest immediately after the conclusion of the 2006 midterm elections, Election Day is finally here.

So don't touch that dial -- we'll be bringing you coverage of what's going on all day, not to mention tracking the results as they come in tonight. And if you have a story of your experience at your local polling place, or as someone working in (or the target of) a get-out-the-vote operation, that you feel is worth sharing, please e-mail it to me: alex(at) I can't guarantee that I'll post your story, or have time to respond today, but I'll do my best.

And if you haven't already, don't forget to submit your predictions for our Election Pool -- one lucky winner will get a free one-year subscription to Salon.
