Braddock Mayor John Fetterman has no patience for the idea that that voting for Hillary Clinton is voting for the lesser of two evils. He said that thought is “logically bankrupt.” He’ll tell you that Clinton is a “qualified, committed and decent person.” And that’s why he’s supporting her and spoke at her Pitt rally on Monday, too.

The Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division will have staff in 67 jurisdictions for Election Day, and Allegheny County is one of them. Officials said the move happens regularly for elections. But this election is happening amid Trump warning supporters of rigging and urging them to watch the polls closely. (Worried about hostile poll watchers? This is what you should look out for.)
You can still vote. (There’s also a group of Pittsburghers helping people vote today even if they’re hospitalized.)
