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:
- My first stops will be Twitter’s Election 2008 Site, and Twitter Search. Keep an eye on the trending topics tomorrow.
- Of course I’ll have CNN on the TV, but I’ll also be looking at CNN’s Election Center 2008 online. Their Political Ticker blog is another page I’ll be refreshing.
- The 2008 Presidential Election site at Yahoo! News. Already one of the most highly-trafficked sites this election season, they’re expecting to break all kinds of traffic records tomorrow.
- FiveThirtyEight.com. They’ve got an insane amount of statistics on the site, and should be a good source of information tomorrow assuming they update frequently enough.
- I’ll check Dave Winer’s NewsJunk site every now and then. It’s constantly updated with new stuff.
- I’m curious to see how socialmedian’s new Election 2008 site does, and I’ll also be keeping an eye on FriendFeed.
- BarackObama.com. I’m going to be watching for the “we did it” graphic! Have your screenshot finger ready.
- I may check out C-SPAN’s site also. They did some really great stuff with the debates this election.
- If you’re looking for political blogs to read tomorrow, check out this list at The Blog Herald. In particular, I’d keep an eye on The Huffington Post.
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.
