We will admit there have been moments over the last 20 months when we weren’t convinced this day would ever come. But it’s here! Based on the accounts of some WNYC listeners the lines are long everywhere. Based on our Facebook page 670,000 users have voted. The BBC World News spent the first half hour this morning discussing today’s election and it is the front page story on both the Globe & Mail and the Guardian.
Needless to say the US coverage will be voluminous. The New York Times already has an interactive map up on the home page that will show the results as the polls close, and our favorite NYT liveblogger Kit Seeyle has mapped out your dinner plans based on election returns. Everyone from the Atlantic to individual reporters will be twittering throughout the day. We will do our best to keep up. In the meantime if you’re still unsure where to vote go here.
