14 adorable, non-partisan puppy GIFs you can stare at to calm your election anxiety

Election Day is hard. Not only do you have to wake up early to vote and stare at selfie after selfie of “I voted” stickers on your timelines, but this year it feels like a lot of shit is at stake. Depending on who wins, things can go in very different directions. And even if your candidate wins, they both have so many issues and caveats following them around it’s hard to feel calm about the future. So here are some cute puppies to help with election anxiety. Puppies are the best every day, no matter what. They’re soft and tiny and run around and… there is nothing offensive about a puppy. Also they are filled with love to warm your cold, anxiety ridden, election fatigued heart.

Being as happy and carefree as a puppy is probably something you will not feel for a long, long time, no matter how the election results pan out. Seriously — on Tuesday morning, Donald Trump’s legal team filed a suit in Nevada because a poll worker let voters who were in line vote two hours after the polling place was supposed to close. Like, we are going to be talking about this fucking election for months, possibly years. Take a minute and get some puppy love.
