Election Night: E.politics is Live on Fox5

The rumors are true: I’m cheating on the internet. Here’s the scoop — along with my friend David Almacy, I’ll be on the Washington-area Fox affiliate’s live election coverage tonight, both online and on the air (Fox5 News!). We’ll be serving as the resident online politics experts, and you can tune in via live web video from 7-10 as they come to us for a few minutes every half-hour. From 10 until midnight, we’re live on the air, under what I assume will be the same arrangement. I’m not shunning the interweb completely though: I’ll also be updating a resource page or two on e.pol and also doing Twitter posts. Should be a hoot all around — swing on by and check it out.

Election Day Update: A Sudden Change of Political Loyalties

Forget Obama and McCain; this time, let’s vote for a REAL leader:

Admiral Ackbar in 2008

C’mon, who can forget his brilliant command at the Battle of Endor to focus all fire on that Super Star Destroyer? If he can beat the entire Imperial fleet with just a ragtag band of rebels, the financial crisis is toast. Thanks to my brother Stratton for sending this over and showing me The Light.

Seriously, can you believe election day’s FINALLY here? I just checked, and the first two presidential campaign-related articles on e.politics seem to have appeared in August (McCain as online juggernaut!?!) and September (Mark Warner in Second Life!) of 2006, well over two years ago. I think I’m more relieved now than anything else — my nervous system was starting to short out a couple of weeks ago. Time to go to the polls — the Admiral’s definitely got my vote.

On Election Day, Twitter Your Vote

As you’re voting on Tuesday, don’t forget to post your experience at the Twitter Vote Report — the folks behind it, include many of the techPresident crew along with some great organizations, have put together a site to collect reports from around the country. All you have to do is use the “#votereport” hashtag in your Tweet and the system will automatically display it on the Vote Report site (NPR also has instructions for participating if you’re not on Twitter). Cool idea — it’s a way to aggregate information from across the country and put it out in a single forum for journalists and voting rights advocates to see. Threat Level will also be collecting reports of voting problems, and of course thousands of Americans will record their experiences in their own ways. Hell of a year so far, and we’re not quite done.
