And we thought past presidential elections were contentious: With less than a week to go until the election is over (can we get a collective hallelujah?!), we thought we'd revisit this piece about dead giveaways you live in a largely Democratic or Republican building.

(This story was updated in November 2016).

Although we pretty much know which way New York City will go on Tuesday, your building might be different.

Here are telltale signs how your building is likely to vote (and yes, we know some of this might be based on assumptions, but we could all use a little levity in this election cycle, don't you think?):

Blue building: Your neighbors think Samantha Bee is a news reporter.
Red building:  Your neighbors think Rush Limbaugh is a news reporter.

Blue building: The alteration agreement says you cannot renovate on Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.
Red building: The alteration agreement says you cannot renovate on Rudy Giuliani's birthday. 

Blue building: Your co-op board president/building manager has an email signature that ends #NeverTrump.
Red building:  Your co-op board president/building manager has an email signature that ends #HillaryforPrison.

Blue building: In summertime, there is often a lemonade stand outside.
Red building: Summer in the city? Don't think so. 

Blue building: There are a fair number of celebrities in the building (but not Clint Eastwood).
Red building:  The co-op board makes a point of not approving (those left-leaning) celebrities.

Blue building: The board wants to convert the old laundry room into a bike room.
Red building: The board wants to convert the old laundry room into a gun locker. 

Blue building: Your neighbors occupied Wall Street.
Red building:  Your neighbors built Wall Street.

Blue building: Residents in your building started a grassroots organization (with a Facebook page) when rezoning threatened to boot it from a coveted school.
Red building:  Residents in your building started a grassroots organization that advocates health care vouchers for plastic surgery performed out of the country.
