Not a US citizen? Forgot to cast an absentee ballot? You can still pick your candidate for the US presidential elections, albeit by making your voice heard through the power of donuts.

Dunkin’ Donuts in Iceland has announced that they are now selling specially marked donuts emblazoned with the faces of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

“We’re excited about the elections in the US,” Dunkin’ Donuts posts. “Who would you vote for?”

Judging by the comments, most Icelanders either support Clinton or think both candidates are terrible. Trump, however, does have his share of supporters in Iceland. Perhaps unsurprisingly, as he has been illegally soliciting donations from Icelandic MPs for months now.

One might be forgiven for scoffing at this election-by-donut experiment. However, a similar election-by-donut conducted for the Icelandic parliamentary elections last month generated results more accurate than any poll in the country.

The Grapevine has still not received word on when the results of this election-by-donut will be released. Americans will be voting for their next president today.
