Following the election online

So, what blogs/websites are you using to follow today’s elections? Have any exit poll results been posted yet?

I’m currently looking at CNN (for actual information) and FOX (for entertainment). Of course, at 2 PM, there aren’t any results in yet, and there won’t be for quite some time, but I’m prepared.

On-line, I’ll probably stick with the SDMB (or, for those who wish a bit more vitriol), with an occasional excursion to FOX or CNN.

I’ll have my TV on though, and that will be channel-flipping like crazy.

I’ve got beer, Ruffles and onion dip, and jalapeno poppers. Feels like the Super Bowl.

Voting ends at 19:00 local time, doesn’t it? So I’ll see the first results from the East Coast a bit after midnight. I’ll see the exit polls (which will be there the moment polls close) then go to bed and wake to the results.

So much for the reknowned Republican ability to get out the vote!

This is my Super Bowl. Maybe my team will even win this year. :slight_smile:

I’ll second the feel of something along the lines of the Super Bowl. Felt that way since the '84 election. Tonight there are chips, beer, vodka and side bets.

Admittedly, kinda sad the elections have gotten to this point. But at least we’re not looking at over/under teasers of deaths related to the vote. That’s gotta count for something.

Upon preview, it’s good to see trash-talking regarding the election. The state of the union is such that we can treat it like a sporting event. We truly have it better than just about anyone. Regarless of who “wins”, it’s nice to know we are well fed and well sated to be able to focus so much energy on such minutiae.

I say we have all already won.

It’s probably about half and half between closing at 19:00 and 20:00, and a few go till 21:00. I’d expect the crucial states to be too close to call with the first results, though.

The first states are largely Democrat anyway, aren’t they?

Off camera, South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford could be heard telling her husband that she had reminded him to bring it. (Watch his wife’s stunned reaction – 2:09)

Watching CNN for actual information my ass

By no means. Most of them are largely Republican, and will be bellwhethers of the evening. Especially Virginia, which has a critical Senate race.

This site has closing times. (For every election this year, you’ll have to scroll down quite a ways to get to today.)

Again, you beat me to it. I was going to mention VA.

Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina… not necessarily.

I’ll be here all night. :smiley:
