Hear chief, it’s Election Day in the US. You realize 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 couple of weeks have provided a continuous barrage of reminders to vote. In the present day. Tuesday. November 3. 2020.
It appears the final one to seek out out, nevertheless, was Siri . Should you occurred to greet Apple’s sensible assistant with a “Completely satisfied Election Day” earlier right this moment, it might nicely 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 problem, although the issue seems to be that Siri jumped the gun right here. November 8 is, in reality, election day. Simply not this 12 months. November 8, 2022 marks one other main election right here within the U.S. — specifically the midterms, which can little doubt be all kinds of enjoyable and nerve-racking in their very own lovely method. A unending supply if nervousness, this lovely factor the traditional Greeks known as “democracy.”
Siri notably wasn’t the one one which combined up their dates. An Instagram cache issue earlier right this moment brought on 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, exhibiting up at your polling place to vote will doubtless be frowned upon.
