A VOTER CASTS A BALLOT NOVEMBER 6, 2012 BEHIND AN APPROPRIATELY RED-WHITE-AND-BLUE CURTAIN IN Portsmouth, N.H. Tuesday. The photo was shot and uploaded to Flickr by Blake Gumprecht, 52, a geographer at the University of New Hampsire. An estimated 120 million Americans are expected to cast votes in this year’s presidential race.
Gumprecht voted — but not for any candidate in the presidential race. “I voted for state and local offices in which there was a candidate worthy of my vote,” he said.

A judge ordered pollworkers at Franklin Elementary School in Philadelphia to cover a wall mural depicting President Obama. Pennsylvania state law prohibits soliciting votes “for any political party, political body, or candidate, nor may any unauthorized written or printed materials be posted within the polling place.”
Now the count begins.
