The search for “how to impeach a president” has increased by 5,000%.

Only hours after Donald Trump won the election, many people were already looking for ways to impeach him.

Searches for “how to impeach a president” saw a 4,850% increase after the president-elect’s victory, notes the Independent. Yesterday, the top states searching for this were Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado—all of which Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton won in the election.

Today, the search term “impeach Trump” is No.8 on Trump-related queries, according to Google Trends. People in Oregon, California, Washington, and Colorado are also searching for this, as are those in Vermont. Clinton won Vermont on Tuesday night with 61% of the vote.

Searches for “how to move to Canada” also increased in the U.S. the night of Trump’s win, according to the Independent. So much so, the country’s immigration and citizenship website crashed. The same search also surged 350% after Trump’s victory on Super Tuesday, leading the immigration and citizenship site to display a warning that said users “may experience delays while using the website.”
