Congratulations, America: You've almost survived Election Season 2016. Sure, you stopped having sex entirely. You gave up porn. You even think "death by meteorite" is a better option than either candidate. But it's finally coming to an end. To help you safely get off this celibacy-inducing campaign trail, we dug up the answers to every thing you need to know to cast your vote tomorrow… and then find your way to a good cocktail that can help you forget this election season ever happened. 

Am I registered? 

Don't needlessly waste your valuable morning coffee time at the polls, only to find out you didn't actually remember to register. Check your registration status in advance. Like, now. Thankfully North Carolina makes it easy: Just check the voter registration portal online.

If you're not registered, well, it's too late. We're sorry you won't get to wear a sticker tomorrow that announces you perform your civic duties. 

Where is my polling location?

Just enter your address online to see where to vote tomorrow.  

What do I need to bring to vote?

You don't need to bring anything if you've voted in North Carolina before. If it's your first time, bring a driver's license, passport, or employee ID card.

When does my poll open? 

If you're feeling extra patriotic, you can cast a vote at 6:30am and make it to one of Charlotte's best coffee shops by 6:41am. 

When does my poll close?

If your AM political commitments are limited to rewatching Alec Baldwin nail his Trump impressions, don't worry: You have until 7:30pm to vote. Grab a drink afterwards. You deserve it after this election season.
