Washington (CNN) - With Election Day just hours away, the rhetoric keeps getting more intense, interesting and, shall we say, passionate. Here are some things you might have missed.

Volunteers were armed with iPads. The iPad software directed each volunteer to homes pre-selected by the group. As the volunteers asked questions and filled in the answer on the iPad, the information was sent back real time to a database controlled by American Crossroads.
