We've been putting off coverage of the US elections for a long time now, but with the election only weeks away, we figure its time to let loose. The stories about the election will be posted under the United States topic, and will stop with the announcement of the winner. Stories that are selected will be very few, so expect to be have submissions rejected. Submissions must have some sort of angle for them to be considered for Slashdot, and we will be brutal: we're not CNN here. And if you don't care about the election, login and disable the United States topic and you'll be free from this. We're starting this off with a link from TOTKChief where you can read NASA Watch's of journal of space-related election news, which is just the first of many issues we think is relevant in this upcoming election. Read it, make up your own mind, and vote goddammit.
