How I plan to track the election online

barack obama Finally, it’s election time! Tomorrow evening either Barack Obama or John McCain will become the next President of the United States. Like most of you, I’ll be watching the results closely. Exactly four months ago Obama clinched the Democratic nomination, and I hope tomorrow is the day his campaign comes to a victorious end. I’m so excited! And also a little glad that it’ll finally be over, to be honest.

Here are a few of the places I’ll be watching tomorrow:

Know of any great resources I’ve missed? Let me know. Go Obama!

UPDATE: As expected, Mashable has a giant list of election resources. Check it out.

  1. Hmm good call Chris! I’ve always been interested in prediction markets since reading about them in “The Wisdom of the Crowds” but haven’t ever tried one, actually.

  2. Hey Mack! Nice list!

    Sadly I’m not going to be able to follow the election live online. Have lectures to attend. Sigh.

    Once I get back though, I’m planning on using the BBC’s live map. They do a great job of presenting the info in an easy to view manner.

  3. I’m looking forward to the live coverage by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. And I’ll flip back to Fox news once and a while to see how long they’ll be calling it for McCain….

    I love too. My favourite part is the section on the right sidebar where they list the probability of various scenarios; it gives you a great breakdown of how the states are interrelated and various outcomes will affect the entire election.
