HIGHLIGHTS
Finally, come what may — a “blue shift,” a “red mirage,” the biggest turnout ever, in the most important election of our lifetimes — it’s time for you to vote. Inside this week’s cover section, you’ll find details on casting your ballot by mail and what to expect for election night and the many uncertain days that could follow. We also talk with experts on militant groups in America who are issuing warnings about extremism while also trying not to inadvertently suppress voting by sensationalizing the danger. Finally, staff reporter Daniel Walters analyzes the different attention-grabbing strategies of the two men vying for high office: one who craves the spotlight and the other who promises he’ll be boring enough to ignore. Find those stories and a lot more in the latest edition of the Inlander.

Also this week:
• Staff reporter Wilson Criscione details how the Spokane Police Department continues to ticket homeless people — even when the city’s own records show there’s no place for them to go.
