How to Find Comfort This Election Night

  • 3627

November 3, 2020, will mark one of the most pivotal election nights in American history. Amid a pandemic and a time of nationwide social reckoning, there is a tremendous amount at stake. And, due to COVID-19, more Americans than ever will be voting by mail, meaning there is a good chance we may not know results until days after the actual election.

Once you’ve cast your ballot, you may wonder what to do on election night itself. Our suggestion? Get ready to cozy up with your quarantine pod and settle in for what is likely to be a long and turbulent evening. We’re thinking sweatpants, comfort food (ending with a warm apple pie if you’re feeling extra patriotic), and, of course, copious amounts of wine. Tempted as you may be to get wrapped up in the Twitter storms and polling-count drama, the most important thing to remember on Tuesday night is your own mental health.

Here, a soul-warming bundle of ideas to inspire a night in with your loved ones. Even if they don’t make it to your doorstep in time for Election Day itself, they’re perfect for using all through hibernation season.
