12:37 PM: From the Google Blog Top searches on Election Day (part 1)
“No fewer than 87 of the top 100 fastest-rising terms relate to the election right now. Of these, 10 relate to searches for state information, including [florida sample ballot], [ohio ballot issues 2008] and [where to vote in texas]. We practical Americans are keen to be rewarded for our participation, too: [free stuff for voting] refers to the giveaways some retailers are offering citizens who stop in. One ubiquitous coffee purveyor is called out in particular: [starbucks free coffee], [starbucks election] and [starbucks vote] are clear indicators of the caffeine boost people anticipate needing today.”

    Watching from the sidelines…I'm the same here in the UK, except I'll be staying awake all night to watch the TV coverage biting my nails on the edge of my seat. I have a lot of American friends and know how dearly this affects them…it affects us in the UK quite distinctly too so my fingers, toes and everything is firmly crossed for Obama. For one thing, McCain's preference for continuing a war that is costing the US so many billions when they're in a dire financial crisis is a dangerous, foolish thing to even contemplate.

    I hope all the coverage of this is pushing one thing into the minds of people everywhere – GO AND VOTE. Many people don't even have the right to; we are the lucky ones – exercise that right!!
