RAPPER’S ELECTION MATH
"I’m voting today for Obama...... Why? Because i just don’t TRUST Romney. If you disagree with me...All you have to do is vote for Romney and cancel out my vote. #ELECTIONMATH" — Actor-rapper Ice T on Twitter.
VOTING IN THE DARK
On New York City’s Staten Island, voters lined up outside dark tents to vote in areas still without power after Superstorm Sandy. In the Jersey Shore community of Little Egg Harbor Township, voters cast ballots in a mobile polling station dubbed the "vote-a-bago", just one week after Sandy devastated towns and cities along the state’s coastline.

AUTHOR’S ADVICE: VOTE
Judy Blume has been writing for young readers for decades, and she posted an election-day message to them on Facebook.
"I’m voting because voting is a privilege and I’ve never missed an election since I turned 21 and got the right to cast my vote. (Yes, you had to be 21 to vote then)," the author writes. "It makes me crazy when I hear young people say elections have nothing to do with them. I’ve got news for you if you think this election has nothing to do with your life. It has everything to do with your life."
Blume says the issues most important to her this election are women’s rights, the environment, health care, foreign relations and "to have a say in who will be appointed to the Supreme Court."
"I’m voting for the candidate I trust more," she says.
