Will You Follow Tonight's Election Results Online?

Will You Follow Tonight's Election Results Online?

I have an election night ritual: I settle in from work into some cozy pants and slippers, get on the couch, and eat an easy dinner in front of the TV. This year, I will be in front of the TV, but I'll be dividing my time between it and my laptop to watch the election results come in.

Prior to this, I always waited patiently for my newscasters to update me with the latest info, but now with the Internet's reach, I can know the latest as soon as the talking heads do. Like I said, I plan on getting my election coverage from the tube as well as my computer, but are you planning on watching primarily from your TV or the Internet?

I followed entirely online since I'm living abroad at the moment and was on/off in bed for most of the results, though I was up between 1-4 a.m. my local time with BBC, Guardian, and CNN websites up refreshing themselves periodically. I had my laptop set up next to my bed so I could see it as soon as I opened my eyes!

I have my T.V on and multiple windows on my laptop open to see results as they come in. I'm also glued to Twitter. lol

Since I'm not in the States and voted by absentee ballot, I'm relying on the internet to keep me updated with a live feed. Waking up every hour to check! Don't want to wake up to a McCain win!

Right now I am watching on TV -- tuning to NBC during the Priviledged commercials. I have also been going online on computer and iPhone.

I sit in front of a computer all day at work! I'll be watching on TV, that way I can make some dinner and plop on the couch.

It seems like I'm the *only* person in Chicago who is opting to stay home instead of going to the Obama rally. But while I'm sitting in my PJs on the couch, I'll be watching the Daily Show/Colbert Report coverage, checking in with the local news channels to see who's ahead in state races, and also checking out some betting websites. I hear that betting companies have been much more accurate in regards to picking a winner than the traditional news media, so I'm going to see if that is in fact true.

I'll have NBC on probably around 10:00 and I'll check a little online. I vowed to not watch TV until tonight, and It's a gorgeous day here today!
