From Tom’s Reading List

POLITICO: Exit polls under siege -- "Ever since Jimmy Carter’s early concession in 1980 was blamed for losses to down-ballot Democrats in Western states, both politicians and media outlets have been religious about not reporting the results until everyone’s voted. But that’s all about to change, starting early Tuesday morning."

ProPublica: Double Voting is Extremely Rare, and One Solution Might Be Worse — "If you show up to vote on Nov. 8, what are the chances that someone with the same name and date of birth is doing the same in another state? New research suggests that this happened about 30,000 times nationwide in 2012, or about 0.02 percent of votes cast, but it’s not clear how many were actually double votes by the same person."

WBUR: In Final Weekend Before Election Day, Trump And Clinton Fiercely Campaign In N.H. — "With Election Day on Tuesday, the presidential candidates are making their final pitches to voters across the country. Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump — as well as their surrogates — spent a lot of time the past few days in swing-state New Hampshire, which has become one of the key battlegrounds at the end of a long and divisive campaign."

This program aired on November 8, 2016.
