It’s election day! Go vote! And if you’ve got toddlers, head over to Berkeley’s Habitot for “Let’s Go Vote Day.” Preschool aged tots are invited to cast a ballot in the children’s museum’s mini-voting booths, make Lincoln hats and stars-and-stripes necklaces, and settle in for some patriotic storytelling too between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. today.
And tonight, as you watch the big red state/blue state countdown, pass the time by playing a rousing game of candidate bingo. Yep, we’ve uploaded a set of four, ready-for-primetime bingo cards. Didja vote? Fill in the center square. The rest is a lighthearted salute to election night cliches – elephants, donkeys, confetti, tearful candidates and TV anchor platitudes. Enjoy!
