Before hiring someone to do one-time tasks (by which I mean things like paying a plumber to fix something, or a painter, or whatever), can I ask them how they voted? [more inside]
My friend and I are trying to find a photo he saw on one of the many live blogs on Election Day. Despite our successful Google-fu track records, we're unable to find it. Can you help us? [more inside]
California became a state in 1850, and voted in the 1852, 1856, and 1860 Presidential elections before the transcontinental telegraph. Oregon became a state in 1859, so also voted in 1860. How (and when) did the rest of the country find out how they voted? Did their electoral college results get to Congress in time to be counted, and how were they sent?

You have probably heard about one political party in New Mexico sending postcards warning voters that "their neighbors will know" who they voted for.

Why are Trump and Clinton showing up in my Twitter feed all of a sudden and is there any way to get rid of them? [more inside]
The first debate is coming up in a week. I could watch it at home, but I'd rather watch it with some like-minded (i.e. fiercely anti-trump) people for psychic support. Anyone know a good bar/cafe/other public venue in Berkeley or Oakland that will be screening the debate(s)?

I watched this Clinton ad today that used footage from James Comey's testimony to Congress yesterday. How long did this take to make? There aren't many edits, or anything, but it's professionally put together and very concisely argued. I'm just curious, from conception to completion, how many person hours would something like this take?
For the upcoming Canadian election on Oct. 19, I would like to vote in advance. However, I am not registered to vote, and cannot register through the online system as I do not have an Ontario driver's license. Is it possible for me to vote in advance if I'm not registered?

How can I watch election results without a TV? I dropped my cable subscription about 6 months ago, and haven't missed it... until now. How can I watch the election results roll in tomorrow night?
