Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 11/3/08

We're just hours away from election day and tracking all the candidates last moves to get out the vote.

Tonight on AC360°, we'll take you live to several rallies. Senators Obama, McCain and Gov. Palin are all expected to be holding events during AC360°. We're also tracking reports of voting problems. So far, 32,500 complaints have come into the CNN Voter Hotline. The most are out of Florida, with more than 1,500 complaints. The biggest issues: voter registration and absentee ballot problems.

We want you to share your thoughts on this historic election.  Just scroll down below and post your feedback.  AC360° is live from 10pm ET to Midnight ET.

But don't forget our rules. Just like election officials we have rules, too.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short
2) NO CAPS!!!
3) Stay on topic

Don't forget to watch Erica Hill's webcast during the commercials. LINK TO WEBCAST.

    I was sorely disappointed seeing my SC state senator stumping for McCain, maybe that is why the talk around town is he is not going to be re-elected. Democrats all the way in 2008.

    The beauty of it all is that, McCain can still win tomorrow, and we will feel safer and secure.
    If Obama wins, we will start worrying about what Biden was talking about. God help us.
    And go the Mavericks.

    Can't wait until tomorrow night to see how the numbers turn out. It would have been nice to find out the numbers for the small town with 19 registered voters tonight.

    Good night all.

    Oh no! You’ve just made me very sad. Surely his services will still be required sometimes post-election? Don’t take away our Gergen, 360!
    Stacy......
    I agree with you...... I love David Gergen...... He is best commentar!

    This is my first night posting, but I have watched every night all the way through these past 21 months. Anderson, Erica, Candy, Roland, David, John, Jeffery, Gloria, and everyone else. CNN is the best team on television. Now, let's all get some sleep and watch John's 'Magic Map'
    turn blue tomorrow night!

    Why has no one addressed the fact that Bush sent roughly 5000 men and women to their deaths for a war that was not justified except to line the pockets of politicians like Dick Chaney and George Bush, republicans have alot to answer for. I don't see a toe tag on Osama's foot.
    Great job George...Oh ya didn't Mcain and palin support that too.

    remember to Support your Troops....

    19 registered voters!?! Amazing if this was a microcosm of the whole U.S!

    I am saddened by Obama's loss. I know his Grandmother is watching in spirit.
    I pray there is no violence tomorrow as people try to vote.
    I wish the entire country had Oregon's system of voting. It's all done by mail and in the privacy of your own home. It works well. It's just that people need to know that by a certain date they can't mail their ballot, and they need to drop it off at an official ballot drop box.
    What an amazing job Obama and his supporters have done! Don't stop now!

    AC 360,

    You are one of the best at what you do. Thank you, for doing what you do each and everyday.

    I have already voted for "change we can believe in". I hope Barack Obama wins by a landslide.

    You haven't see Biden because they've hidden him away because of all the gaffs he has been making. Good move on the part of the Obama campaign.

    What about the Biden's speech? Did you just said that you will bring his speech too? This is not good Anderson.

    Joe Biden has strengthened the White Catholic vote as well as the blue collar vote. He is the perfect compliment to Obama. He is not the most media savy, but you cannot beat his Foreign Policy credentials.

    Ken,

    You are so right. "he is ready for a fight" doesn't McCain understand the American people are tired of the fight. We want to get something done through a bi-partisan process. We don't need to shake something up, we need to have a spirit of cooperation.

    I feel, once again, like a child on the night before Christmas-so excited that I can't sleep and hoping that Santa will deliver that one big present I have wanted for oh so very long...Only I'm not a child, I'm almost 50 yrs. old and the present I am eagerly awaiting is named Obama–a true American hero.
