Days to 2016 Election

Here’s a simple snippet example on showing how many days until the next election.

#!/usr/bin/php
<?php
date_default_timezone_set('America/New_York');
$dateDiff = mktime(0,0,0,11,8,2016) - mktime();
echo  floor($dateDiff/60/60/24) . " days";
?>

You could easily modify this to be any countdown that you want. (Christmas, Black Friday, Inauguration Day, Start of Summer)

Another Solution:

#!/usr/bin/php
<?php
date_default_timezone_set('America/New_York');
$datetime1 = new DateTime();
$datetime2 = new DateTime('2016-11-08');
$interval = $datetime1->diff($datetime2);
echo $interval->format('%R%a days');
?>
