Maybe you voted early or by absentee ballot. Maybe you went this morning, or at lunchtime. But doesn’t scrolling past all those “I Voted” stickers on your social media feeds make you want to vote for more things today?

This is the post for you. In honor of today’s Big Decision, we’ve put together a series of Small Decisions: we’ve trawled the Atlas for our favorite swing-state destinations, and pitted them against each other. Who should take Ohio—Helltown, with its haunted, abandoned homes, or Crystal Cave, the world’s largest geode?

Who deserves Florida—a huge preserve for displaced wolves, or a massive carillon tower? It’s distracting, totally inconsequential, and maybe even fun. And you don’t even have to wait in line!

Results will be announced starting at 6:45 p.m. ET—vote early and often!
