    What is open, what is closed, when do things have to close prior, and when can they reopen? Can a restaurant sell you alcohol with your meal?

    I thought for some reason that there was no booze on Election day itself. But then, I usually end up there for censuses and deaths, not for elections.

    Booze is an issue the night before, and all night Clubs and sporting events, concerts have to end at 1AM on election day.... as far as I know, on election day iteslf you can drink all you want at restaurants and bars... I guess they assume folks involved in the election organization are at their posts and cant booze away at their posts.....

    The sense I got from the handful of people I spoke with was that there really wasn't another better option. Although I don't know much, many of the players were from the post-crash when times were also not particularly good. Billboards like "Free Wi-Fi for all?" :eek:

    Of course it is. Of note to those who may be incidentally reading this, even though it is called a "landslide," almost half of the population voted against her. However, the 2d largest vote-getter couldn't even muster 17%.
