It’s time to vote… and party!

2 Nov

Woo hoo! It’s finally election day. That means it’s time to vote if you haven’t already, anytime between 7am-8pm.

If you’re not sure where you’re polling place is, you can find out with this Google tool. And if you’re still unsure of how to vote, check out my endorsement post.

Tonight, there are tons of election night parties in Oakland, and no matter who you support, I’m sure there’s somewhere for you to go. Here’s a listing of all of the public election night parties I could find. If you know of others, please share them in the comments and I’ll do my best to update this post throughout the day.

    Just to clarify, Oakland Rising’s party goes until 2am, not 9:30pm! 🙂 So you can cruise around to the other parties and then come over to ours cuz we’ll be going late.

      Thanks! I got that time from the Facebook event a few days ago – I thought it was really odd. Now the Facebook event says midnight so you might want to update that.

      I’ve updated above, and now that I know it goes late into the night, I’ll definitely stop by!
