So, it’s done. The 2020 General Elections have set rules from midnight on October 16 until 7 pm on October 17, you cannot post or share content that is likely to, or intended to influence someone’s candidate, party or referendum vote.

On election day supplementary limitations apply when you’re posting to social media.

For example, paid online election advertising is prohibited and the election day rules make no exemption for the expression of personal political views online.

Here are five things you can do on Twitter other than talk about Politics during Election Day:

1.) Tweet about how your day is going with an hourly update.. kind of like a diary if you say so. You could even use the scheduling tool on Twitter to tweet your plans of what you’re going to be getting up to each hour as your day goes by so your followers know; this means you do not have to type a single tweet all day long — no more being a keyboard warrior at the stake of the electoral rules!

2) You could tweet something along the lines of “heart if you like peace and quiet!” – it’s not an influence!

3.) Log out of Twitter and celebrate an unofficial holiday called Election Day.

4.) Provide customer service by replying to anyone with information on where to vote if that person is confused about voting and encourage them to go to the voting booths and cast their vote if they have not done it yet. Voting only takes 10 minutes, and it’s a straightforward process.

5.) Or, you can Tweet something just like Felix.
