In case you prefer to get your news online, here are a variety of ways to follow the election coverage.
Homemade videos are linked to a map on Youtube's Video Your Vote.
Google has created maps especially for the occasion. One nice pairing of video and maps allows you to track the locations of the candidates' speeches, then watch them through Youtube. Justin Ward has also created a gadget for live election coverage.
I particularly like the Every Moment Now graph of article references for each candidate. Of course, there's always FiveThirtyEight. You can also follow political headlines at Alltop. PBS's Newshour is also online. (More links are available through 10,000 Words.)
By the way - to those who have been focused on following each step of this election, what will you read when the battle is over? Will you still check the news feverishly, or are you looking forward to spending your time in other pursuits?
