City Hallways (Nov.8) More emails - but these are mine, not Hillary Clinton's

Finally, Election Day

Here's some of what's come into my email in the past 24 hours:

The Zephyr Teachout for Congress campaign  was still asking for money as of Monday evening.

Ditto from the Tea Party Express.

The New York Civil Liberties Union this morning let me know it's set  up a hotlne voters can call  if  they feel intimidated, or if they are experiencing any problems, at the  polls.  It's a statewide initiative, but there's apparently particular concern in  Western New  York because it's got a highly contested Senate race as well as the  presidential contest.

So the NYCLU will be available to take WNY  complaints and concerns from 8 a.m.  until 10  p.m.

The number to call is 332-4658.

And for those who don't feel comfortable calling  the Civil Liberties Union, I just got  another email, this one from the state Attorney General's office,  which has also set up an Election Day hotline  for  anyone facing problems or issues  at the  polls. That number is 800-771-7755. The AG's  office also offers an  email complaint line:civil.rights@ag.ny.gov

Call or write between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.

And now for my personal favorite Election Day email, from the University at Buffalo, which is apparently worried the nasty presidential campaign has bummed out the country.

UB sent out a press  release  quoting Steven Dubovsky, chairman of the UB's Psychiatry Department, who says this:

"This campaign has consisted  of two candidates attacking  each other, and  people feel like they are voting for  the lesser of  two evils.  That generates depression and  helplessness."

On that note, I'm leaving my email for a bit while  I go vote.
