Congratulations, America: You’ve almost survived Election Season 2016. Sure, you stopped having sex entirely. You gave up porn. You even think â€śdeath 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 New York makes it easy: Just check your voter registration 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?

Drop in your voter information to check where to cast your ballot tomorrow.  

What do I need to bring to vote?

If you've voted in New York before, you won't have to show ID. If it's your first time voting and you registered by mail without a copy of your ID, bring one of the following with you: driver’s license, ID card, utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or any other government document that shows your name and address.

When does my poll open? 

If you're feeling extra-patriotic, you can cast a vote at 6am and grab a bagel by 6:17am. 

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 9pm to vote. Grab a drink afterwards. You deserve it after this election season.
