Our audience of political junkies won’t sit back watching results passively, so Rewire will be blogging live from all around the country and the world with special focus on sexual and reproductive health races. Will pro-choice Republican moderates get wiped out? Are anti-choice extremists in Congress going to get whipped by centrist backlash? Do eggs get rights in Colorado? Will women and teens keep their rights in South Dakota and California? Are pro-life Dems going to support the pro-education, pro-prevention agenda?

Emily Douglas will be blogging live from Comedy Central’s "Indecision 2008" featuring Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to provide some star-studded fun, and we’ll have sexual and reproductive health experts providing analysis nationally. Todd Epp, Editor of South Dakota Watch will keep us tuned into the latest on Measure 11; Wendy Norris, Editor of Colorado Confidential will be our eyes and ears on Proposition 48 along with Sarah Fong from the campaign; Representatives from the No On Proposition 4 campaign will bring us the scoop on the parental notification measure in California. Rewire writers Anna Clark, Gloria Feldt, Cristina Page, Frances Kissling, Carole Joffe, Kay Steiger, Sarah Seltzer, Amie Newman, Scott Swenson, Brady Swenson, Sarah Fong and Lindsay Beyerstein along with leaders from Planned Parenthood and other progressive reproductive health organizations will join us. Stop by make your voice heard!
