Tuesday is election day! Here's what DU members need to know. [View all]

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Announcements group).

As you know, election day is coming on Tuesday. We look forward to spending the day with all our DU friends as we take our first step toward taking our country back from Trump and his enablers. Here are a few things you need to know.


GET OUT AND VOTE!
I'm pretty sure it goes without saying here on DU that everyone needs to get out and vote! Then you can let your friends on DU know that you fulfilled your civic duty by displaying the "I voted" avatar image on all of your posts. Click on the "My Profile" link at the top of any page, then look for "Avatar Image" and click "Edit." The "I voted" image is under the "Slogans" subcategory:




DON'T GET BLOCKED OUT!
The DU administrators are doing everything we can to keep DU online and working properly, but there is still a chance that the site may not be available to everyone due to heavy traffic or worse. In the event of heavy traffic, we may need to block out some visitors so that others can still access the site. If that happens, preference will be given to visitors who have active DU accounts, with top priority given to Star Members.

-- If you are not a DU subscriber, you can purchase a Star Membership here.


WHERE TO GET INFORMATION IF YOU CAN'T ACCESS DU
Two years ago, on election day 2016, Democratic Underground was the victim of a crippling hack that forced us to take the site offline for weeks. Since then we have implemented numerous upgrades to improve the security of our site. But despite our best efforts it is still possible that we could be the victim of another attack. The risk is even greater around election time.

If the website becomes unavailable for any reason, we will post information on Twitter and Facebook to keep you informed. If you are a member of Twitter or Facebook, please consider following us on those platforms. Or you can bookmark the pages below just in case you need them later:

Thank you for being a DU member. Go Dems!
