Hey! Election Day is exciting, and you might forget things! So when you leave the house to go vote, keep this checklist handy! First you have to decide whether you're a Democrat (D) or a Republican (R), so if you don't know yet, you might want to get on that, ok!

BRING A FORM OF ID, JUST IN CASE:
Democrats - Drivers license and a utility bill
Republicans - T.G.I.F. punch card, Buy 9 Jalapeno Popper Platters and Get 1 Free!

TO LISTEN TO ON THE WAY THERE:
(D) - iPod, tuned to Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder
(R) - Windows Zune, tuned to Bring Me To Life by Evanescence

TO READ WHILE WAITING IN LINE:
(D) - The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein and a copy of The New Yorker
(R) - The Washington Times editorial page, the childrens' book Everybody Poops, and a pile of Bazooka wrappers

TO BRING INTO THE BOOTH:
(D) - Cellphone with video camera to record your vote being immediately flipped to McCain
(R) - Trifocals on a red rhinestone chain and your lucky autographed picture of Jason Robards

AND DON'T FORGET TO WEAR:
(D) - A big Obama/Biden pin
(R) - A cloud of rage and self-loathing
