    I will be glued to Fox News Channel, at the very least. But that's not unusual behavior for me, LOL. :D

    I'll be kind of interested in how the large number of new voters shake out.

    And it's going to be interesting to see if all the attempts to discourage voters will reduce the turnout.

    I have been invited to the Ononadaga County Republician HQs since I an running for state assembly, even though I am not on the Republician ticket. (I am on the Conservative line)
    There will be a direct link to the Board of Elections for immediate results.

    Or if dead people will be voting, or if the homeless will be paid in skanky t-shirts and cigarettes to vote, or if people will be going from poll to poll voting and voting, or if people without ID will be voting.

    Yup, it's going to be interesting.

    I think I'll be watching WWF wrestling. It's the same scripting only there is a slim chance that most folks know it's fake.

    I am only going to watch until the last return from the last precinct is reported.

    Don't the Pistons open their title defense tonight? At least we will know the winner of that contest this evening. And there won't be any lawyers to contest it ...

    I'm already following. Drudge reports that machines in Philadelphia already had 2000 votes recorded before the polls opened.

    Last time, it wasn't decided until December 13 and the poll numbers going in this time are even closer to a draw than then.

    I'll be checking in & out.

    I'll be following fairly closely. Some news channel and the internet mostly. Not sure which ones yet other than the hour of Daily Show coverage at 9:00. Can't miss that. Better coverage than the real news.

    I will not be making the same mistake this year as last election. I decided I would stay up until we knew who won. Celebrated the Bush victory a little prematurely and ended up going to work on no sleep. If it is that close again, I can find out tomorrow morning. ;)

    Or later...

    The Saturday Night Live Election Special last night was interesting, although mostly not live. They replayed old parodies of previous election debates.

    I hadn't realized until I saw it last night that Jimmy Carter had been accused of "flip-flopping" by Ford's campaign.
