Hope you've all voted or will at lunch or on your way home from work. It appears that many polling places were crowded this morning, so democracy is in full bloom.

There are a few ways you can take part in our coverage of today's voting.

If you have your camera handy when you vote, send us your photos of the scene at your polling place.

Or be one of our poll-watchers; that is, after you vote, report to us on where you voted, who you voted for (if you don't mind telling us), how crowded the polling place was, and any other details you want to add. You can read what others have written so far here (and sort by town), and if you want to add your observations, just fill out this easy form.

Feeling patriotic? Then belt out a tune for all to hear. All you have to do is dial a number, wait for the beep, clear your throat, and start singing. We even provide the lyrics to four popular patriotic songs. Believe me, you don't have to have a good voice -- just listen to some of the clips others have already recorded. Here are the details.

Meanwhile, I've uploaded the last of the foliage shots into the gallery; next up are your action sports shots, which are pouring in.

Also on tap: Another On Assignment essay and photos, a Globe tipsheet from photographer Joanne Rathe on taking good photos for holiday cards, polls to choose themes for December AND January (to give you time to shoot), and soon, voting for the October "Up Close" contest winner.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
