Happy election day, New Yorkers!
The day that many have been anxiously waiting for is finally upon us. Unfortunately, New York is one of the 13 states across the country that do not have an early voting period. So it's no surprise that long wait times are currently happening at polling places across the city.
Luckily, whether you're taking that completely legal two-hour lunch break, or casually dipping out of work early to vote, one thing may make those lines go a little bit faster. Free pizza delivered to your polling place!
Pizza to the Polls is bringing free slices of pizza to all the awesome people who are waiting to vote across the country. Sixteen pizzas were already delivered this morning to a polling place in Crown Heights. But don’t worry, more pies are on their way!

Somebody told us they might need pizzas at 750 Classon Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238, USA— Pizza to the Polls (@PizzaToThePolls) November 6, 2018
The organization states:
“Americans are hungry for democracy and are turning out in record numbers to vote. But that means long lines and sometimes empty stomachs, which might discourage these brave patriots from performing their civic duty.”
Want pizza at your polling place? All you need to do is reach out to the nonprofit via Twitter or Instagram, or report a long poll line via the organization's website. Pizzas are delivered free of charge to the voters from local pizzerias in the area via Slice.
Hang in there New Yorkers, we're gonna make it through this midterm one slice at a time.
