Where/how do you plan on keeping track of the election? CNN? FOX? MSNBC? Local channels? I have no cable,so I will be watching the local news.
What about online.... where are some good web sites that will have up-to-the minute coverage? I'm sure THIS forum will be rockin'! What are your plans for election night?

MSNBC.

Fox News tends to get the results in quicker than the rest of the networks, so I'll likely switch between MSNBC and Fox.

As far as CNN is concerned, I can't stand the way they initially post their results: at first they put up the raw number differences, but neglect to put a percentage difference between the candidates, so their numbers are a real eyesore to read. That's one of the things that really annoyed me in the primaries, so I'm avoiding CNN on election night.

I think CNN tries to be overly cautious.
