Where to watch the election results
The time has come, America.
No more excuses. No more fretting. It's time to cast our vote for the next President of the United States.
Afterward, if you're like me, you'll probably want to be glued to every media outlet there is to watch the process unfold. Most primetime election coverage on major TV networks begins around 7pm, about two hours before most polls on the East Coast begin to close. Usually we have to wait until after most polls close to begin hearing about results, but this year, Slate has broken with an unwritten rule to journalism to report on exit polls in some major swing states while polls there are still open.
It's a decision that has been met with some controversy, but it will be interesting to see if doing so actually depresses voter turnout.
News analyst Nate Silver's website FiveThirtyEight is also covering results in a liveblog here.
Finally, I'm excited to be following NPR Politics this year.
As results start coming in, they will have a live battleground map that you can sort by district and demographic, which will be VERY interesting to see how demographics shape this year's election. You can also hear the NPR Politics team coverage of election results on your local NPR station, or live streaming online. You can find your local station here.
Of course I also plan to be glued to Twitter as the results come in. Follow my reactions @mattgrantwriter.
