Things to do on Tuesday for completely free


November 3, as it often is, is election day, and an awful lot of people suspect that most of us won’t take advantage of it.

Which, you know, not to be a hopeless politics geek about it, but I went before work at seven this past voting day, and my husband went after work at five, and there were 20 people between us. That’s kind of embarrassing.

So please, vote. Things being what they are, it truly doesn’t take much time, and it really does matter.

In NY (polls are open from 6 am to 9 pm), call 1-866-VOTE-NYC (1-866-868-3692), or go to to find your polling place.

In NJ (polls are open from 6 am to 8 pm), call 1-877-NJ-VOTER (1-877-658-6837), or go to

Whatever side you’re on, the person you most don’t like in whatever race affects you is hoping you don’t show up.

Srsly, piss them off. Vote.
