18 Most Tired Election Day Trends On Instagram

If Instagram users love two things, it’s American flag stuff and showing off. Obviously an activity that combines both of those things — voting! — would lead to a big, big day for the social network.

1. Putting your “I Voted” sticker on your duck-face lips.

4. There’s also the “I Voted” forehead.

Beats a real tattoo there, that’s for sure.

Dogs are even being subjected to this sticker placement all over the country.

9. Randomly associating the election with really, weirdly high heels.

Are these the kind of shoes you that allow you to put coins in the soles?

14. Wearing a tee of one of the candidates.

Because there isn’t enough opportunity for kissy lips/duck face in everyday life. THIS IS WHAT PEOPLE RESORT TO.

15. Self-portraits of one’s own feet.

ID: 678631

Note: This is more easily excusable if you have awesomely dorky statement election socks.

ID: 678593

16. Wearing flag things, like tanks.

ID: 678601

Shiny stars.

ID: 678604

Full flag jumpsuits.

ID: 678615

Flag sweaters.

ID: 678672

Whatever garment this bra-exposing flag thing is.

Bathing suit? Tank? JUMPSUIT? (I hope.)

ID: 678646

17. Or, just posing with flags.

ID: 678635

Or posing with flags while bragging about snowboarding. (Which makes perfect sense because something people love to brag about just about as much as voting is how great they are at winter sports.)

ID: 678452

18. “Uncle Sam.”

ID: 678663
