      ...someone of even minimal tech competence.  Sadly...

      What I do feel is within my capacity, now that the ads have stopped (they only run until midnight?), is to Google Vote Early Virginia.  I do know how to grab URLs!

      The states must be abolished.

      It's this.  You start there, click "In Person" and then put in a zip at the next screen, which, when you put in my zip of 20191, gives the results I've described.

      Do I need to do anything else?

      •  If you use Windows, (0+ / 0-)

        Go to the site showing the disinformation map, hold down Alt and click the key marked Prt Scrn (that's Print Screen) on your keyboard. This will copy the current contents of your screen to your computer's clipboard, just like copying and pasting text.

        Then open Windows Paint (which comes with Windows, under Accessories in the Start Menu usually), make a new document and click Ctrl+V to paste the image into it. Or depending on your version of Windows, there may be an option on Paint that says "new image from clipboard" or something. You can do similar things with other image manipulation programs.

        I assume there's an easy screen capture method for Mac, too, but I don't know it. I expect Google will tell you, though.

          I've looked at the map, and (not being from VA)  it's not obvious to me what information there is incorrect.

          You can use this screen capture several times (saving your images from Paint each time: File: Save As...) to capture the contents of the pop-up bubbles one at a time if they're the issue, or you can zoom in on the locations on the map and capture those images if the locations themselves are what's false.

          Hope this helps.
