Google Trends, the analytics arm of Google search, tweeted that people are searching for food and liquor en masse during election night.

Google Trends compiles and visualizes popular searches on their site, and Tuesday night, with the vote coming in, the results aren’t what you might expect. It’s not “Did Trump win Florida.” No, two of the major questions asked by people on Google is where the nearest french fries are and where the closest alcohol is.

The top five election night food searches include pizza, Chinese food, liquor, sushi, and Mexican food. Meanwhile, “fries near me” and “liquor near me” were searched more tonight than ever before.

“Are you thinking about food, this #ElectionDay? You are not alone,” Google Trends tweeted.

While both fries and liquor hit peak popularity on Nov. 3, different parts of the country are craving either guilty pleasure. The highest search for fries takes place in Nevada with California and Delaware following behind.

Delaware also has the highest search for liquor. Delaware is former Vice President Joe Biden’s home state.

Election night will consist of many Google searches, mainly for results. But, before they come in, Americans are demonstrating their priorities.
