There's really nothing for it, not at this stage.Â Propaganda, marketing, and psychological operations have done all they can.
Voters who remain undecided should seek professional assistance as soon as possible to prevent injury from overwrought hand-wringing, or other long-term damage. The rest of us will struggle on and try to do what we think best.

Many will see today as the last full-spectrum day of candidate drum-beating, tambourine-shaking, and stump-smoldering speechifying.Â There may be a regretful tear at this realization and news.
We must try to have, and show, pity towards victims of Campaignitis -- that rote-learned, knee-jerk, nearly autonomic response slowly built up over time in response to talking points, memes, and rigid belief systems following prolonged, unsafe exposure to politics and, especially, politicians.
Just as radiation research established maximum safe exposure levels people could withstand, measured and expressed in units called rads, political workers can unknowingly absorb too many cams over a short period of time.
Where film badges could show exposure levels in radiation workers, political workers can rely on regular, white bond paper, taken from copy machines and printer trays, then pinning a section to clothing, watching for any signs of a dark brown discoloration -- the so-called BS method of detection.
