Some election-day wisdom courtesy of The Cut: Log off at 4:30 p.m. and don’t log back on until 6:55. Did you miss the cutoff? Don’t worry; better late than never.

You’ll be rested and relaxed (in theory, anyway) by the time polls close in Georgia, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, and some of Florida — when the “fun” really begins.
