Fancy A Pint On Election Night?

As a celebration of the democratic process our friends at Fancyapint.com have come up with a top ten list of pubs with an election theme. They apologise in advance for any that are a bit of a stretch, but hey, these lists don't grow on trees. So, whether you want to escape the election madness or go watch the initial results with a pint, here's a few places to go - after you've voted, of course!

And while the results roll in don't forget to tweet us @londonist three sheets to the wind for almost guaranteed inclusion in our election night liveblog. More of which in the morning....
