It’s finally, finally, finally here: Election Day 2020! If you’ve already voted, well done, but if you’ve waited to face the task today, that’s OK too. Here are 3 things to know about this much anticipated day.
1. It’s not too late.
You’ve been seeing photos of early voters standing in lines for hours, celebrities sporting “I Voted” stickers, and your favorite influencers asking if you have a voting plan for weeks now. You’ve been busy — we believe you — but that doesn’t mean you’ve missed your chance. Find all the information you need on the Rock the Vote website.
2. Dress for the occasion.
You may get lucky, but to be safe, expect the lines to be long. Like really long. You got this! Wear your comfiest clothes (mask included), bring a buddy or downloaded podcast/book/playlist to keep you company, and pack a bag of yummy snacks. No judgement here: we’d personally pack potato chips and dark chocolate peanut butter cups.
3. Don’t expect Election Day 2020 results tonight.
With so much early voting involved (over 98 million early votes–amazing!), it’s very likely states will take longer than usual to get all votes counted. This is where we all bring our patience to the table. Don’t expect your traditional Election Night winner call. Instead, go to bed knowing you did your part by getting your vote in on time.
