Election Day: Play-by-Play Coverage

I figure that someone needs to do some play-by-play of election day, for those of us who will be working, learning, etc and unable to make it to a TV.

And since I thought of it first, I'm making the thread now so that nobody steals my idea. I'll bring it back up on Tuesday.

Oh, and pax, I know you're thinking this should have gone in the sticky thread up at the top, but I'm inclined to disagree, just because I have a feeling this thread is going to be big. Combined with that one, and it'll push it over 500 posts probably so it'll need to be closed. If you disagree, then by all means you can do whatever you like with this one.

Weeeeeeelllllllllllllllll...

My only concern is that that's sort of what we intended with the sticky thread--instacomments to get us through the next couple of days, right through when we find out the winner.

You know what, though, I think this could work. Here's what I'm going to do: We'll keep this thread for NEWS ONLY--no commentary. Sort of like one of those feeds, you know what I mean.

Commentary can go in the other thread.

Plus, that'll save time for folks who only want the facts.

Does that work for you, Dave?

Let the mayhem begin.

it's raining across many of the swing states in the midwest... especially ohio and western pennsylvania... could effect voter turn out, especially with the "unlikely voters," i.e. first time voters. only time will tell.

It's raining here in Ohio down on OSU campus...and the line was two hours long!

( I had to leave to make it to work on time but I'm heading back there at 6...I don't care if it's sleet and hail. And yes, I am a first time voter. )

What the news elsewhere? Anything seeming to take shape one way or another yet?

It's raining across a lot of the country.

I would think that would help Kerry out, seeing as most Bush supporters are rural and would have to travel much farther to a polling station.

Well actually there is, through a fluke statistical anomoly that county has accurately determined either the winner or the looser in every past election.
