Mostly brought on by 2334324948502345749 posts urging me to go vote, which are not necessary as I already voted. Well, not that many, but after I hit "More" a few times, my regular news feed tab has 66 posts in it while the Political tab has 40. (And ChefVille has 27, another reason I use Social Fixer--to filter out game posts.)
(And it occurs to me that what may be really needed is not a push on election day to tell people to vote, but a push a few weeks previously to get people to register to vote.)
