Our friends at Gotham Gazette reminded Gothamist about their awesome Voting Arcade games to get your ready to exercise your right to vote. Inspired by the city's broken down voting machines, they've taken old school video games and given them a 2004 election spin. You can play PAC Man to chase the money, Poli-Tetris ("the Gerrymandering game"), or Hanging Pong.

Actual voting can be just as, if not even more, fun, though with less colorful graphics. Some resources: NYC's Board of Elections (find out where you vote - and who is running) and the Commision on Presidential Debates (here what the Presidential candidates were saying).
