You've donated, you've canvassed, you've taken train rides to swing states. You've even cold-called on Sunday mornings in exchange for free Bloody Marys (and yes, they were good!). But, finally—the time has come. And though it's been a long road, it's shaping up to be an even longer night. So, we asked some of our good people to weigh in on what they'll be doing on the Biggest night of the year. Get ready to rumble!
Diane von Furstenberg, Designer: "I will be in London...at the end of a long Asia journey…will be watching the election in bed in my hotel room with room service. If Obama wins…I will go and celebrate, dance in the streets and all!!"
Jeff Halmos, Shipley & Halmos: "I'll spend Tuesday evening carefully standing close to the television with my remote control in hand trying to pick the precise moment to freeze frame the ironic look on Sean Hannity's face when he finally realizes Barack Obama has won in a landslide. Unfortunately, I'll only be able to stand watching that (expletive) for five minutes before switching channels."
Sam Shipley, Shipley & Halmos: "Bears, Bears, Bears, Ditka, Bears, Bears, Bulls, Obama."
Phil Oh, StreetPeeper.com "I'm actually cutting a family holiday short to fly back to NYC on Election Day to vote. I'm ashamed to say that this will be my first time exercising my right to vote—haven't done anything like it since the race for 8th Grade Student Council treasurer (I voted for myself). I don't have any big plans except watching CNN in the confines of my own apartment—so no one will see me cry if we lose."
Chrissie Miller, Sophomore: "I spend the weekend through to Election Day calling people in swing states and making sure they know where to go to vote. And the night of I'm having a party at my house with lots of beer and apple pie!"
Pamela Love, Jewelry designer: "I did an absentee ballot in my homestate-Florida!!!! So I'm going on a road trip with some of my Non-American girlfriends who can't vote. We will probably be in a motel somewhere in Canada."
Maria Cornejo, Zero Maria Cornerjo: "Although I can't vote in the U.S., I've been active in trying to get all my friends to vote. I'm excited to see the results, so, I'll be home with my family glued to the television."
Howard Wolfson, Fox News Contributor/Commentator: "I will be on TV at Fox News helping to explain and analyze Barack Obama's big win!"
Harley Viera Newton, Model/DJ/Bass player: "It's terrifying that the Election is tomorrow! I'll probably watch it all go down alone because the results come in just as I get out of class. I'll be at my apartment biting my nails and drinking whisky. And if Obama doesn't win, I'll down another bottle of Jameson and move to Canada."
Rebecca Turbow, Designer: "I will hopefully be celebrating the Obama victory with my friends (Safety in numbers) so vote!!"
