- Numbers to call if you run into problems when voting on Tuesday, in Philadelphia or in Montgomery, Delaware, or Chester counties. (Bucks? You're on your own.) Also, here are some reminders on where and when to go to the polls.
- Philadelphia voters may be surprised to find that there are three ballot questions listed for next Tuesday. The Inquirer offers a summary and recommendations. (Not sure that I agree with them, but am still looking for better info.)

- Bhakta tries to personally prove that politics is a circus.
- More on the action in the 8th District, which is seeing heaps of third-party ads for and against Fitzpatrick and Murphy, as well as a heap of visits, as by this bus full of Democratic rainmakers. The Daily News dissects one ad, and Daddy Democrat explains what it's like to be in the suburbs right now, with the deluge of mailings and other campaign action coming at you all the time.
