Where to Watch Election Night Online

The Web is revving its engine for tomorrow’s big night. Here’s where you can tune in on your computer and your iPhone:

ABC News is offering live streams of its own TV broadcast and they’ll have Web cams at the McCain and Obama campaign headquarters. CBS News will be offering county-by-county, up-to-the-minute results with live blogging, and a simulcast of its TV coverage, starting at 6:30 p.m. Around 2 a.m, Katie Couric will live chat with viewers on CBSNews.com and CNET.com. MSNBC has a neat results widget, which posts real-time results to your blog or Facebook profile. CNN YourRaces allows you to customize your own tracking tool (with local races too), and then watch the results in real time through CNN’s site or on your mobile toy. The New York Times is offering free text-based alerts for election night. Text NEWSALERTS to 698698 to get national results, or text ELECTIONS followed by your zip code (e.g., ELECTIONS 90210) to 698698 for state-specific updates.

YouTube is holding their VideoYourVote campaign. Users send in a video clip of their voting experience, and see what’s happening to other voters across the country.

The Personal Democracy Forum’s techPresident has a “Twitter Vote Report,” where you can tweet your voting experiences and see what others are saying too.

For some old-fashioned fun, in the background, put on NPR, which will air on the Web from 8 p.m to 5 a.m., with more than 100 journalists reporting on the election.
