Election Day in NYC is well underway. 

If you haven't voted yet, there's still time! We've got all the info you need on how to vote today (including how to find your polling location) here. If you've already voted, take that "I Voted" sticker and bring it to one of these awesome local spots for deals and more.

Even though you can still vote until 9pm tonight, there's still been plenty of amazing moments from New Yorkers encouraging one another, entertaining those waiting in lines and showing off their civic pride. Here are 20 of our favorites we've seen so far.

1. The Black Chef Movement feeding the polls
