Election night can feel an emotional rollercoaster—especially this year.

As citizens who care about the future our country and the health of our democracy, many of us may be feeling stressed, exhausted, or nervous.

But we also know that being together with people we love brings courage, confidence, and strength.

We’ve created this guide for everyday Americans to move through election night with purpose.
