Well, it’s almost here—Election Day 2016, featuring probably the most contentious Presidential campaign in my lifetime (and maybe yours). We hope you are planning to vote, US Citizens—if you still need to find your polling place, head here.

And while we know many of you are going to watch the results at home, surrounded by loved ones who won’t mind if you roll into the fetal position and rock back and forth if your candidate loses, we know some of you might want to be with others in a public place, and we’ve got some ideas for you. There are also some Election-related deals out there. Here’s our roundup of all that.
