The election results on November 3rd are up in the air (remember 2016?). But there’s one thing New Yorkers can count on: Your “I Voted” sticker is a ticket to a number of Election Day deals in NYC at restaurants and bars across the city.

If you’re in line waiting to vote, Pizza at the Pools is doing some admirable work feeding citizens and poll workers. If you’re looking to pick up a meal or treats to stress eat your way through the day, here are some of the best Election Day deals NYC has to offer. Another pro tip: Citi Bike and Lyft are offering 50% off one ride with the code "2020VOTE" today.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist this election cycle? James, the cozy neighborhood restaurant in Prospect Heights, has you covered either way this November 3rd. They’ve curated two Election Survival Kits: The Optimist ($130) includes a bottle of pét-nat, two plum margaritas and ingredients for pasta with a black walnut pesto (there’s an apple crisp for dessert, too). For The Pessimist ($145), there’s a heavier-hitting bottle of red and two Dystopian Negronis to pair with two hanger steaks.
