Election Day is rapidly approaching. Many will have Tuesday off and the luxury of keeping score on TV from home. Others will keep tabs online. Whichever way we choose, we treat the event almost like an all-day football game (a very, very important football game), cheering or jeering as each precinct reports. If you’ll be using the net to track the results, news, or still need to make your mind up, here are some resources you’ll find useful:
CNN Election Center – Well designed, lot’s of information and clutter-free. My personal favorite.
USA Today – If it’s just the bottom line, raw news and state-by-state results you’re looking for, USA Today does the job quickly and efficiently.
Politweets – “When Twitter gets political.”
YouTube Super Tuesday – Upload your political opinions, analysis, interviews, or campaign trail footage to YouTube, then use the interactive map to watch videos from voters, candidates, and news outlets.
Scholastic | Election 2008 – A great way to follow the election with your kids.
Google’s Map Mashups – A virtual hodgepodge of the candidates’ speeches, interviews, endorsements and appearances around the nation.
Pollster.com – The must-bookmark for all projection junkies.
Glassbooth.org – This quiz will help all you undecideds settle on a candidate.
