The first thing is, if you haven't already done so, please get out and vote. Today, it's the most important thing you can do. Please don't let long lines or bad weather discourage you. Whatever your political beliefs, you literally hold in your hands the key to the direction our country goes in for the next four years and beyond. It could be very close in Virginia and just a handful of votes in each precinct could tip the balance state-wide.

Then, there are plenty of good blogs where you can get up to the minute coverage of what's going on across Virginia today. Here are a few of my favorites that are providing information for the hopelessly obsessed.

RK has an open thread where people are leaving comments on the length of the wait and size of the lines at polling places state-wide. Commenters are writing in their impressions, experiences and overheard conversations. Left of the Hill's Bryan Scrafford promises to provide updates throughout the day from polling places around the Burke and Fairfax County area. And on the Republican side, in the Hampton Roads, Virginia Beach, Norfolk area, the Bearing Drift crew are reporting on the lines and waits at polling places. I suspect they too will get state-wide comments from their GOP readers.

So, if you are like me and can't wait for tonight's election coverage and returns, you can go over to all these site and spend the day obsessing over what's going on and what's going to happen next. They don't call us political junkies for nothing.
