4.  US Presidential Election
With IETF 85 taking place in the United States, it seems important to note that the United States Presidential Election is taking place on Tuesday, November 6, which is in the middle of the meeting. Non-US residents may want to keep in mind that local media coverage during this time will probably focus on the election. US residents who intend to vote in the election should plan accordingly.

Additional Information: Can I Vote (http://www.canivote.org/), which provides links to each state's voting rules -- including early and absentee voting rules.
