Election Day, and Night

[On the plywood on 2nd Street at Avenue C]

As you may have heard, today is Election Day.

DNAinfo put together a voter's guide featuring a list of the local candidates and races on the ballot. You can find that here.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Go here to find your polling location. (Curbed assembled a few other helpful things to know about Election Day here.)

Grub Street listed a few bars (not East Village specific) around the city to watch the election results. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to call around and ask about Election Day specials at bars here. (One I know of: Iggy's Keltic Lounge on Ludlow between Stanton and Rivington is having an Election Evening party with some free food. Tips from the evening are going to First Descents, an organization that works with young adults impacted by cancer.)

Also, here's another way to spend part of the day...

...long lines at Palladium and two of four scanners already down at 7:15 am. Took an hour. They could use a dozen scanners.

Election Day Prayer Vigil:

1 - *sniff* *sob* Is American still dead?
2 - *sob* *sniff* I think so.
1 - *sniff* *sob* *sniff* OK. Let's just wait a hours more then we can begin dividing up the estate.

Just remember, if you don't vote, they will. [Frank Zappa quote there.]

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
