Election Day is finally here, and you could cut the tension with -- well, just about anything, really. The dull edge of a key. A butter knife coated in marshmallow fluff. A newborn kitten's tiny, gummy teeth.
That's because, as you're probably well aware, the main contests are all pretty much decided. In the race for Public Advocate, Tish James already clinched the Democratic nomination after a contentious, very expensive run-off with Daniel Squadron. Barring a sudden show of force by Libertarians or War Veterans, Scott Stringer will be your next comptroller. And of course, Bill de Blasio still leads Joe Lhota by 40 points or so, making that race, too, not quite a nail-biter. (As we showed you in our voter guide this morning, the constitutional amendments on the ballot do promise to be a little more interesting, specifically Proposal 1, which would legalize casino gaming.)
