Quick Sources for Election 2012 Coverage

The election is coming up tomorrow.  My schedule is very simple.  I wake up.  I shower.  I eat a piece of whole grain bread and a couple of eggs (brain food).  I drive to my local polling place. I vote.  I get in my car, I drive to Bristol and I set up shop for my liveblogging commentary and coverage of the election.  Throughout the day I'll be taking brief breaks from liveblogging to do live television coverage on WCYB and WEMT, the Tri-Cities' and Mountain Empire's local NBC and Fox affiliates, respectively.  I plan on being on the air, either online or televised till at least midnight, so get ready for some excitement. 



REMEMBER! All voters this year will be required to either have bowler derbies or handlebar moustaches, so please, have yours ready to present to your local pollworker.

That said I am not, nor should I be, the only source of information you turn to tomorrow.  Thus I have included this list of sources that you can turn to for both coverage and online communities to discuss the events of the day.
