Your morning news roundup for Friday, October 31st, 2008:

Worried about Nov. 4? You're not the only one. The U.S. presidential election, just days away, is already plagued with complaints of voter fraud, faulty machines, and intimidation. Polls show Obama and McCain neck-and-neck in several swing states, so controversies on election day could determine who ascends to the White House. In anticipation, both the Democrats and the Republicans have hired hordes of lawyers to monitor results.

According to a series of studies at the University of Rochester, men are more attracted to women in red. What's more, they're more likely to spend dolla dolla bills to wine and dine her than they would women in other colors. The results could indicate a deep-seated association of red with sex. No wonder Little Red Riding Hood costumes on grown women make men all funny.

TV personality and prime ministerial son Ben Mulroney married longtime girlfriend Jessica Brownstein in a small ceremony yesterday night. About 75 people, including the groom's parents and billionaire Paul Desmarais Sr., attended the wedding at St. Patrick's Basilica.

Attention, taxpayers: In 2001, Revenu Québec launched a site that lists unclaimed valuables by individuals and companies. The Registre des biens non réclamés is a kind of limbo where all kinds of items are administered: objects belonging to the unknown heirs of the deceased, forgotten valuables belonging to the living, and materials belonging to dissolved companies. Type in your name at the registry's website and see if anything belongs to you.

And last but not least, The Globe and Mail teaches you how to perform damage control on slutty costumes and trick or treat past your prime. Happy Halloween!
