Check out the ‘Last minute LGBT Voter Guide’ for key states

A lot of the electoral coverage has focused on Congress. But, we’re going to be fighting for equality at the state level. David Badash at the New Civil Rights Movement asks:

OK. Now you know who to vote for Governor, Senator, and Representative, what about your state and local races?

To help, David compiled voter guides from a number of states, including California, Florida, Minnesota, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina and Washington. And, he’s going to update it throughout the day.

So, even if you’re ticked at Obama and the Democrats in Congress (and I am), vote for your equality at the local level. Minnesota and New York should be two of the next state’s that pass marriage.

And, if you live in Iowa, vote to retain the Supreme Court Justices. That could be one of the most important elections of this cycle.
