    1. What can we do to support voter turnout in the US elections this fall?

      There is an important election in the United States this fall, and we've all heard a lot of concern expressed about efforts to suppress the vote. Under the shadow of all the other issues we're currently facing as a society, I know a lot of people who are asking "what concrete actions can I take to make a difference?" It seems like helping to get out the vote is one very important action.

      So here's a question to the Tildes community: what suggestions do you have about how we (as individuals) can help get out the vote this fall? Big or small, donating money or doing physical work -- what can we do?

      It's really interesting and pretty useful to know how the 2 US parties are split and which voting blocks have dissappeared and emerged over time and some blocks don't really fit all too well in the 2 parties (most notably the religious left). This also serves as a kind of model for what a multiparty US might look like.
