Lowdown: If Election Parties Bore You ...

Tonight, Humboldt County’s political hopefuls and hangers-on will have their faces fixed on their laptop screens waiting for late-night election results. Big fun, right? But if you are lucky enough to not feel obligated to election party it up this evening, there are some less-tense human gatherings that may grab you. 

Oh, also, if you don’t vote you’re not allowed to have fun tonight. You’ve been warned.
