That's right. Today's Daily is about politics in light of Election Day in the U.S. If you haven't already, go vote (...after reading this very important email).
The presidential election isn't until 2020 but today's midterm elections remain incredibly important, shaping the House and Senate. A massive amount of voters (36 million!) have already cast their ballot ahead of today's election, pointing to the possibility of a record turnout for a midterm. 😳
We went down the Product Hunt rabbit hole and found some cool tools to help you get to the polls and exercise your right today:
is building tech that removes the barriers to voting. You can look up your nearest polling place so you know where to go today and they'll show you who and what will be on your local ballot.
is a rich open database on politicians, including everything from biographical details to social accounts.
matches your phone contacts with a voter file to show you registered friends who needs to get to the polls
is a Chrome plugin that displays the phone number of a member of the U.S. Congress when you hover over their name. You can use this to let your legislators know how you feel about political issues in the future.
See you at the polls!
