Election Day & other treats: D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. It's Election Day. So far, voting seems to be going smoothly at polling places around the region. Of course the real test of efficiency comes tonight when it's time to start counting the votes. While you're waiting for results, why not play a little Election Day Bingo? In the spirit of the day our Frugal Friends in Northern Virginia have a list of places offering free treats for folks who cast their ballot today. (Not sure about you early voters, but hopefully, you saved your sticker!)

From our Frugal Friends in Northern Virginia, a round up of free food offerings for Election Day.

If you’re worried about your teeth – or your kids’ teeth after Sunday’s Trick-or-treating outing, here’s a solution. The group “Treats for Troops” is collecting Halloween candy to send to the troops. All Life is Local has a list of drop-off spots around the D.C.-area. They’ll be collection candy through Saturday.

Via Beyond Bread: You, your office, your neighborhood can all help with Bread For the City’s annual Holiday Helpings drive. Given the tough economic times, more families are in need than ever before. Whether you donate time, food or money – it will all go to help a great cause.

Was Dad wrong? Turns out yyou CAN compare apples to oranges. Surprising Science explains how.

There’s a chill in the air and you know what that means – flu season is around the corner. Here’s a roundup of locations offering flu vaccinations in Annandale, courtesy of Annandale, Va. There goes your excuse for getting sick.

That's it for now. Thanks much for reading and have a great day. If you haven't -- don't forget to vote and be sure to check Post Local tonight and Wednesday for post-election analysis. I'll also be back tomorrow with more great posts from D.C.'s blogosphere.
