Want to connect with your friends? Then try Snapchat! It’s a trendy app that lets you share pictures and videos with the tap of a button. If anything, it’s one of the most popular social media platforms among teens and young people—and for good reason. After all, it’s fun. Plus, it’s easy to use. Basically, it’s just like taking a regular photo or video with your phone but with added options.
What Features Does Snapchat Have?
Snapchat initially became popular for its “disappearing snaps”. That is, whatever you send would vanish after it’s viewed by the other party. In doing so, you don’t have to worry about your pictures and videos being left somewhere on the internet.
Today, however, they’re mostly known for their lenses and filters. For those who don’t know, they’re special effects that you can use to customize and jazz up your snap. For example, there are ones that will change the background. If you want, you can even use a lens to alter your appearance—those are called face filters and there are plenty of them on the app. The bottom line is, there are hundreds if not thousands of different effects that you can add to your snap. If anything, that’s one of the reasons why people like the platform so much!

The U.S. presidential election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 3, 2020. How many days have we got until then? That’s what this filter will tell you! That’s right, it’ll give you a countdown. Whenever you’re ready, scan the snapcode. The lens will activate and you’ll be able to see the effect on the screen!
Not only will you be wearing a pair of funky red and blue glasses, but you’ll also be wearing a party hat with the same colors! That’s not even the highlight either. As you can see from the screenshot above, the countdown will appear over your head in white. But wait, there’s more. You see, the background’s also animated.

This filter is a fun one—you can actually use it to show people who you’ll be voting for. And guess what? Trump and Biden aren’t the only candidates. That is, there’s a third option. What’s more, is that you can actually choose the third person! How does it work? Once the snap filter’s activated, the photos from your camera roll will pop up at the bottom.
That’s right, you’ll be able to choose one of your own images; whoever you pick will then show up as the third candidate, like the example above. So if you wanted to, you could even add yourself! From there, you can check off who you’ll be voting for on the left-hand side. Simple, right?
7. Go Vote Snapcode
This is one of our favorite lenses from this list. What’s the effect? It’ll literally fill the screen with the word “VOTE.” What’s more, is that that background is actually animated. So yeah, it’s pretty eye-catching. On top of that, the filter will also add the U.S. flag to your cheeks. If anything, it’s like having two tattoos on your face.
But wait, there’s more. It might be hard to tell from the tiny example that we’ve posted, but the filter will also change the look of your eyes. That is, they’ll turn into miniature U.S. flags! How’s that for patriotism? Anyway, go vote! The future is pretty much counting on you.
8. I’ve Voted Snapchat Lens
Let others know that you’ve voted with this patriotic-looking lens! The second you point the camera at yourself, the U.S. colors will appear over your face. That’s not all, a “I voted” sticker will appear at the bottom, along with the U.S. flag. But you see, that’s not even the best part; the filter has much more to offer.
Take a look at the example. The background will literally be the U.S. flag. As if that wasn’t neat enough, there will be actual fireworks at the top. That’s right, they’ll actually be animated. In fact, there are even sound effects! So for this filter, you might want to take a video. It’ll be way more dramatic that way, trust me.
9. Election Newspaper Snapchat Filter
This filter is more for fun than anything. Don’t get me wrong, though, it has everything to do with the presidential election. I mean, just look at the headline! And that’s where the fun comes in. You see, you actually get to choose the picture of the winner. Just like the ballot filter, your images from your camera roll will pop up from the bottom.
Whatever you pick will end up as the picture on the right-hand side on the newspaper. The bottom line is still the same, though. That is, Trump will have been defeated, at least according to the virtual newspaper. There’s even an image of the man in the center (and his expression happens to be so fitting). As for the text? You can see if you can make it out by zooming in! There’s no guarantee that it will actually be relevant, however.
