Patch Will Have Your Election Day Covered

Here's a look at our plans for the day, and how we want you to get involved.

Are you heading to the polls to cast your vote in Tuesday's election? 

There is a lot a stake. In addition to electing our president for the next four years, St. Louis County voters are also picking a U.S. senator. At the state level, voters will pick a governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, state treasurer, along with state senators, representatives and judges.

For a big picture look at it all, check out our Patch Election Guide.

So what will we be doing? We'll be visiting area polling places, talking to voters about what was important to them and to see if there's anything amiss at the polls. Here in Kirkwood and other Patch sites in St. Louis, editors will be meeting up with many of the candidates on the ballot to get their last-minute impressions of things.

But most importantly: we'll want to hear from you. What were lines like at your polling place? What number were you in line? What kind of activity was there outside? What was important in determining your vote? Does your family have a fun election day ritual, or a unique story of a first-time or long-time voter? Tell me: owen.skoler@patch.com.

In the evening, we'll be at various campaign watch parties as the results come in and the reaction flows in. Check back with Creve Coeur Patch for constant updates as they become available.

You'll have plenty of opportunities to comment on Patch stories. You can load your election day photo in our Pics & Clips Gallery. Tweet us a photo or thoughts @KirkwoodPatch or talk to us on Facebook/KirkwoodPatch. You can also follow us on Instagram, at kirkwoodpatch. 

You may be just as excited to see this whole process finally come to an end as you are interested in who wins. Either way, we hope Patch is the place where you come to experience it all.

MUST read: "Support for Kill List and NDAA make Obama and Romney Unfit for Office" http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/reawakening-liberty/2012/nov/2/support-kill-list-and-ndaa-make-obama-and-romney-u/ Make a special note to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party Presidential candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. It is a violation of the 1st Amendament rights of third party candidates, and a violation of the free speech rights of every American, for their voices to be silenced. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1
