Once you've voted there's not much else to do on Election Day other than sit around and wait for results to actually start pouring in. So what better way to get through this time than to click on some mindless election-related single-serving websites? We've compiled some of the ones that have made the rounds, hopefully to soothe some of your nerves.
If you haven't headed out to vote yet this one should be helpful. Type in your address and it tells you where you can vote and which candidates you can vote for. But all the information is spiced up with a healthy dose of a certain expletive.
Though the answer to the question in the URL should be fairly obvious depending on when you're looking, The Guardian and Real Clear Politics have teamed up to create a detailed site that looks at the state of the race. Scroll over the balloons to see which states are red, blue, and toss-up.
A site with an answer that (hopefully) should not change, isnatesilverawitch.com mocks those who have been challenging FiveThirtyEight statistician Nate Silver's election predictions. It also makes us giggle every time we click onto it.
Obama's advisor made a bet that if Obama loses any one of three states—Michigan, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania—he will shave his famous moustache. Keep tabs on the wager here.
In case you're still undecided (or an Obama voter looking for nostalgia) head over to this site, where you can see what Obama has accomplished during his four years in office.
It may look like a real call to pray for a Mitt Romney win, but NBC News reports that this site was actually the brainchild of an Obama supporter, who wanted to test a theory. "Is it possible to build something that some people will love because they think it's real," the creator said in an interview, "and other people will love because they know it's satire?"
Getting fatigued? Play with this tool which tells you which candidate your cat would vote for. Because even pets want representation. (Or their owners would like to think they do.)
