We’re getting into the home stretch of this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad election cycle, and soon we will finally know who will become the new president of the United States.
While we’ve yet to know if America will be led the next four years by either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, we do know that everyone will be eagerly waiting for the results. Here are 5 places in Queens where you can watch the election results come in if you don’t want to watch at home.
