Election Night Resources for Political Junkies

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


For those of you like us who are watching voting irregularities until the exit polls come in, and will watch exit polls until the real numbers come in, and will watch the numbers until the results come in…. here’s some stuff from around the web to fuel your obsession.

Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire has a list of poll closing times for each state in the country, with links to pages where you can get results.

The Wall Street Journal has made a handy scorecard [PDF] with the House and Senate races that will determine control of Congress.

And CBS has a neat article on how networks make each “call” that so many people tonight will exult/groan over.

More from Mother Jones as the day goes by.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
