Well, let's take a moment together to check out some of the stories posted on Shacknews today. After that, maybe there are some funny Election Day memes we could look at together. Let's go!

A good thread about the US election
The US election is tomorrow. If you, like me, are tired of horse-race-style reporting, and need to zoom out, I wanna tell you a story. It’s about an ancient force influencing the election. And, as a bonus, it’ll give you an Easter egg to watch for as the returns come in. THREAD pic.twitter.com/vfPp0f2s6X— Latif Nasser (@latifnasser) November 2, 2020
This is a great look at the history of some of the areas in North America and why we tend to see a blue stroke through the red.

Imagine being so dumb that the news anchor needs to interrupt to ensure everyone gets the correct information.

Hopefully the world wide forest fire that is 2020 can start to burn out in 2021. If all we have are embers by 2022 I'll be fairly happy about it.
