As millions of Americans head to the polls today to cast their vote in the 2016 presidential election, there's one late entry candidate that could end up snagging a few votes -- at least in Maine. As reported by #Maine, Pennywise (yes, the creepy killer clown from Stephen King's "It") has launched a presidential campaign in the week leading up to the big election. Signs proclaiming "Vote Pennywise" have popped up all around town. There's even one near Stephen King's home, which the author posed with.

Aside from what we've learned about Pennywise in his appearances in pop culture, we really don't know where he stands on a number of issues, like paid family leave and universal health care. His late entry also kept him off the debate stage, although one could assume that he was lurking underneath said stage.
