It’s Voting Day. Finally. After today, the constant barrage of political commercials will end. Unfortunately, the bickering probably will not.

Here’s a rundown of some weird facts about politics and elections:

1. Politicians are almost never photographed wearing sunglasses. They know that if a person’s eyes are hidden, people trust them less.

2. In Nevada, you can vote for “none of the above.”

3. Titles are forever. Once you’ve been elected president, people will always call you Mr. President.

4. Four times in American history, the candidate with fewer votes wound up being president. The last time this happened was in 2000 when George Bush was elected, despite losing the popular vote by 500,000 votes.
