Hey it’s DC and one thing I have learned since moving here a year ago is…politics is the rule.
People today are obsessing and clicking around wasting time this Tuesday November 4th. A lot of people made it out early (most of my friends have been texting me or letting me know via twitter) but no one will see exit-poll results until early evening. A friend of mine reminded that there are mash-up maps of results from sites like this one at SetFive, or this one mapping general Twitter election buzz, are self select reporting and wildly inaccurate as election tracks.
I am a simple guy and will be watching CNN and Fox News…
If you’d like to get the actual numbers tonight as quickly as the talking heads are getting them, here are links to several battleground-state official sites for results in real time, along with poll-closing times. All times are Eastern Standard Time.
