The presidential election is finally over and the country is moving on to other distractions (unless you’re Mitt Romney, which, Jesus, this guy). But for anyone that wants to spend one more beautiful night with Professor Barack Obama and Old Handsome Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer is here to make your dreams come true with a chance to win tickets to the presidential inauguration on Monday, January 21, 2013.

After the Presidential Debates, we issued a plea for people to step up their joke game on Twitter. You listened. Last night, with the deluge of campaign coverage options, including an apparently shitfaced Diane Sawyer on ABC, Twitter was the most entertaining. Behold, some of our favorite election tweets from Brooklyn funny people.

Like the post-mortem that happens every year the Yankees don’t win the World Series, it’s always fun to look at the staggering amount of money spent on a failed campaign. Well, maybe not fun, since Mitt Romney and the Republican Party spent $752.3 million dollars on what amounted to a concession speech. We get it though, elections are expensive: you need to shell out the big bucks for yard signs, buttons, dog whistle racism and a good ground game. Still, what else could that ungodly amount of money been spent on? (more…)

OMG it’s tomorrow!! While Brokesters have been coming out in droves to help people affected by Hurricane Sandy, don’t forget that Election Day is TOMORROW, which means only 1.5 more days of binders full of women memes but also only 1.5 more days to convince voters in swing states to vote for Obama or that other guy…Gary Johnson? (more…)
Sandy be damned, we will vote tomorrow!! Photo by Tom Giebel.
This past week we’ve all been a little distracted by that brat Sandy and the amazing and inspiring outpouring of volunteer relief efforts in her wake. But the election that will shape the next four years of our lives and the future of this country is TOMORROW! If you keep your permanent residence out of state, you can still file an absentee ballot until 5pm today. If you are registered to vote locally, many polling sites have been changed due to Sandy’s wrath. Here are the changes for Brooklyn residents.

Let’s pause your Sandy-drenched nightmare for a sec to remind you that there’s a Presidential election on Tuesday. We almost forgot all about the Binders Full of Women. Here are some election parties happening on Tuesday in Brooklyn. (more…)

If you live outside of Brooklyn and hadn’t updated your voter registration info, because, say, you didn’t expect a freak storm to roll in and disrupt all forms of transit, you may have been thinking you were SOL when it came time to vote. Now, though, the state Board of Elections has extended the deadline to show up and apply for an absentee ballot in person to November 5. To do so, you have to show up at your local Board of Elections, which in Brooklyn is located at on the 4th floor of 345 Adams Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. The office is open between 10am and 9pm on Monday. Information on other city Boards of Election can be found here.

Last night marked the third and final Presidential Debate. Thank god, because I don’t think my newsfeed or my eyes can handle any more pointless tweets. Live-tweeting is as much a part of the American dream as playing the lottery: hoping against hope that a blog will see your brilliant tweet, broadcast it and you’ll get a ton of new followers and a book or a sitcom. But at the very least, turn off Facebook sharing so that your loved ones aren’t subjected to your ”wit.” (more…)

Now that each candidate has thrown a debate in the interest of building high drama and ratings for the third one, we can finally find out whether Mitt Romney or Barack Obama is the true champion of debating, and therefore, the true president. While the foreign policy focus of this debate should keep Mitt Romney from threatening Big Bird or starting a truly odd meme, his most recent foreign policy experience is being chased through the streets of London by the Queen for insulting the Olympics, so we’re sure he won’t let us down this time. Brooklyn’s watering holes are still in the election year spirit and showing the debates, so they won’t let you down tonight either. And as always, neither will our drinking game. (more…)

Still need a place to watch tonight’s Presidential debate because all your friends were going on about how much fun our drinking game was? Here’s a list of the best places to see if Obama can treat this debate like Rocky in Rocky IV. (more…)
