The GOP is recruiting 50,000 poll watchers for Election Day — the first time in 40 years this is allowed without court oversight, says @TheAtlantic.

In the past, they (often off-duty officers) allegedly:
- blocked voters
- attacked poll workers
- harassed minority neighborhoods https://t.co/AfnT1z3DHy

At the debate, President Trump told his supporters to "go into the polls and watch" for alleged ballot manipulation, raising concerns of voter intimidation.

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in any election.

The rate is 0.00004%-0.0009%, says @BrennanCenter. https://t.co/wzFA8fvPhx

India rescuers are searching for a 12-year-old girl buried alive after a massive garbage dump collapsed.

She has been buried for 5 days.

Her family is among 4 million people who survive by scavenging dumps and the UN warns the pandemic is forcing more children into child labor. https://t.co/Yn0mvbNcIK

At the debate, President Trump claimed he is making insulin "so cheap, it's like water."

Insulin costs most people with diabetes over $300/month.

At the debate, President Trump would not condemn white supremacists and told the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by."

Proud Boys T-shirts with the slogan are already being sold.

The group is a @splcenter-listed hate group and linked to the deadly 2017 Charlottesville march. https://t.co/IA6edsVOWi

New York City reported a daily #COVID19 positive testing rate of 3.25% — the highest in months.
