How will you follow the election results?

Check as many as apply, but more importantly, discuss. I did my best to be complete.






My wife is going to her mom's to pour over the tv coverage. But her candidate (and her mom's) is not my candidate. They will spend some time on local stations, to follow local races.

I may pop in a movie and check occasionally, or I might compulsively surf the web for results with election results on the TV nonstop.

A bunch. I will be channel surfing, web surfing, and, for the time I'm gone to vote, listening in the car.

About a week ago, I had lost interest in this whole race. I firmly agreed with my gf's insistance that "this election needs to fuck off." But when it comes down to brass tacks, I just can't not care about Election Day.

If Kerry wins, I might tune into Fox news to see how they're handling it. Otherwise, I'll be flipping between the Daily Show and a major news broadcast (or maybe pbs). I will be all zooted though, so I might end up watching Family Guy or Canadian Parliament or something.

I'll watch Daily Show, CNN (we don't get Fox News here), and probably NBC or one of the other networks.

I'll also be on DVDTalk, and I'll check out the WSJ tomorrow.

I will be listening to the radio so as not to interupt playing the new Grand Theft Auto.

Since I'll be at work until the voting (except in Alaska) is complete, I'll be checking CNN.com mostly.

I remember 4 years ago, DVD Talk was a better source of information than the major news networks. I'd see something here or go check an online recount site and then wouldn't see that info for at least half an hour on TV, and sometimes they got it wrong. So, I'll watch <i>The Daily Show</i> for entertainment and probably check here and other various websites.
