Forget social media or TV—people in New York City can look to the Empire State Building for real-time election results.

In a partnership with CNN, Instagram, CA Technologies, and the building’s management, the Empire State Building is also displaying campaign photos, maps, and Instagram mosaics throughout the night. And once the final results are in, a projection of either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be featured on the building, according to CNN. There will also be flashing lights and animated fireworks.

If you post election-themed photo to Instagram, use the hashtag #MyVote and it might be featured on the building.

If you’re not in New York, CNN is also featuring the #MyVote projections at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., and on the Miracle Mile in Las Vegas. And depending on who wins, The Coit Tower in San Francisco will also be lit up in either red or blue lights.
