Election Day Is Here: HuffPost DC Top 5 For Tuesday, November 6

TOP 5 FOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6

1. Vote
Find your polling place.

2. Election Night Jam At Kennedy Center
Enjoy jazz from Jason Moran & The Bandwagon while watching election results on large monitors. Not a bad option if you're bipartisan. 6 p.m., all ages, no cover

3. Brightest Young Things Election Night Party At Bohemian Caverns
Yes, this will be a Democratic crowd, but it's a fun crowd more than anything else. It's also the only party we found that will have cotton candy. A vote for cotton candy is a vote for freedom. Or something. It'll be fun. 5 p.m., 21+, $10

4. Free Burger At Z-Burger
Another good reason to cast a vote.

5. Vote
Seriously. If you don't, P Diddy might kill you.
