Eerie Timelapse of the Day: Washington, D.C., Without the People

It's Election Day! Freak out!

Here's a nice version of another one of those "Empty Cities" timelapse videos of Washington, D.C., courtesy of ThrashLab, with some poppy synth tracks to get you pumped up for tonight's Presidential Showdown.

On a side note, this is approximately what the city of D.C. -- in which 92 percent of voters chose Barack Obama for President four years ago -- will look like if Mitt Romney wins tonight.
