The election has been stressful, but this map will help you take the edge off on Nov. 8.

Foursquare teamed up with the Voting Information Project to help voters find their polling place – and the closest establishment to grab a drink afterwards.

"We created this map so Americans can plan their Election Day and make a special moment out of the act of voting – giving people options for how they can treat themselves with coffee, lunch, and/or a drink following a visit to the polls," Sarah Spagnlo, Foursquare's editor-at-large, told Mashable.

It's really slick to use. Just click here and type in your home address. Then a map opens, showing your house, polling place and nearby coffee shops, bars and restaurants, along with their hours. (We did notice it doesn't seem to include every nearby establishment or local craft brewery, though.)

The map should work for every residential address in the state.
