Capitals pushing fans to vote for bobblehead giveaway

Washington to open window on Election Day to choose promotional doll for March 21 @NHL

The presidential race won't be the only one with plenty of intrigue in Washington on Election Day. The Washington Capitals are holding their own election on Nov. 8, when fans will decide which bobblehead the team gives out later this season. 

Tweet from @Capitals: Meet the Candidates! @Holts170, @tom_wilso and @JustinWilliams! Who will you vote for on Nov. 8? #CapsElectionNight

Starting at 9 a.m. ET on Nov. 8, the Capitals will open a 12-hour window of voting across social media for fans to weigh in on which player's likeness should be distributed at their game against the Calgary Flames on March 21. 

Fans can vote for either goalie Braden Holtby or forwards Tom Wilson and Justin Williams, and the Capitals have set up a special website for those interested in making a more informed decision.

For $59, fans can buy the election-night package, with tickets to Washington's game against the San Jose Sharks on Nov. 8 and the bobblehead giveaway against Calgary in March.
