Pay attention chief, it’s Election Day in the USA. You already know that, I do know that. Everybody is aware of that — and within the off-chance anybody wasn’t clued in to the actual fact, the previous few weeks have provided a continuous barrage of reminders to vote. At present. Tuesday. November 3. 2020.

It appears the final one to seek out out, nevertheless, was Siri . If you happen to occurred to greet Apple’s sensible assistant with a “Comfortable Election Day” earlier immediately, it could properly have answered that the massive day isn’t till November 8, as pointed out by noted Twitter enthusiast, Lucas Matney.

Apple has since mounted the difficulty, although the issue seems to be that Siri jumped the gun right here. November Eight is, the truth is, election day. Simply not this yr. November 8, 2022 marks one other main election right here within the U.S. — particularly the midterms, which is able to little doubt be all kinds of enjoyable and nerve-racking in their very own stunning means. A unending supply if anxiousness, this stunning factor the traditional Greeks referred to as “democracy.”

Siri notably wasn’t the one one which combined up their dates. An Instagram cache issue earlier immediately brought about the social media service to recommend to customers that “Tomorrow is Election Day.” Which, it’s not. Whereas it appears doubtless the presidential race will nonetheless be up within the air come tomorrow, displaying up at your polling place to vote will doubtless be frowned upon.
