When is Election Day? The answer: Tuesday, Nov. 8. You already knew that, of course, but what about everyone else? 

Max Temkin, co-creator of the ribald party game Cards Against Humanity and founder of the pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC The Nuisance Committee, teamed with programmer and former Code For America fellow Alex Soble to create an app that turns your Twitter handle into a daily countdown to the 2016 election.

That app is called Countdown Name.

Now, all the social media marking thought leaders, white nationalist trolls, and porn-y spambots who follow you on Twitter will be subjected to regular reminders about the importance of voting.

However, you may want your own bespoke Election Day-themed Twitter name. If so, please feel free to select from the following list:

  • Please God, Let It End
  • This Election Is Hell
  • I Need This To Be Over
  • **Soft Weeping**
  • **Loud Sobbing**
  • **Uncontrollable Crying**
  • You’re Really Voting For Trump?
  • You’re Really Voting For Hillary?
  • You’re Really Voting For Johnson?
  • You’re Really Voting For Stein?
  • You’re Really Voting For McMullin?
  • Wait, Who’s McMullin
  • An Independent GOP Candidate. Does He Matter?
  • Kinda, He Might Win Utah
  • The Whole State?
  • Polls Show He’s Close
  • When’s The Last Time That Happened?
  • 1968
  • Wow, That’s Nuts
  • How You Doing These Days?
  • Can’t Complain. Alice?
  • She’s Good, Too
  • You Two Wanna Come By My Place On Election Night, We’re Making Stroganoff 
  • I Love Stroganoff
  • It’s The Best
  • We’re Totally There
  • Bring A Bottle Of Red?
  • Done And Done
  • 7 days til election
