Tracking the election tonight

Posted to Visualization  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

As the results roll in tonight, you have plenty of options to keep track of who won what and where. These should cover all of your bases.

New York Times coverage — Up to their old tricks, they have a map, big board, and network calls. The paths to the White House interactive will also be updating live.

NPR big board — Updating every 15 seconds, this is the display that NPR hosts and election staff are watching. And of course, there’s also news coverage.

Huffington Post map — Like the others, updates every 30 seconds. Also indicates where polls have closed.

Is Obama president? — Finally, if all you care about now is the result, the minimalist Guardian and Real Clear Politics collaboration provides that. See also Romney version.

(There are a ton more, but these are the ones I’ll be watching.)
