Their are important election races for the Senate, House of Representatives, local judges, school boards, and town councils. Here are several methods you can use to get your fill of election results.
Local Television Election Results
Local television is one of the best way to view election results for your local candidates. Even though the networks may take over the airwaves to report on national campaigns, it may seem that you are going to miss out on local election results. However, many local news organizations will carry local election results as a scroll along the bottom of the screen. So be sure to check out local election results on television channels that are reserved for your local news cast.
The Internet Election Results
The Internet is one tried and true method for viewing election results. Sites like CNN and Foxnews will always be there to post realtime election results from the national stages. However, you may have to wait a while to have local election results posting to these larger sites. If you are looking for local election results you can check with websites for your local election board from your county. You should try searching for local election results that are available from your county commission, or local television company.
Radio Election Results
If you are on the road, then the only way to get local election results may come from the radio. If there is a radio station in your area that broadcasts local news on a regular basis, then they may carry live programming to cover the elections. If they are still tied to a national new program on the evening of the the elections, then one way you can catch election results on a local radio station is to turn it on at the top of the hour and at half past the hour. Usually, a local election update may be broadcast every 30 minutes on a local radio station.
Smart Phone Election Results
If you are lucky enough to have a smart phone with Internet access during these hard economic times, then you will be able to catch elections results using special applications built for your phone. These applications are specially built for providing election results to your phone, and usually will cost about a dollar or two depending on the applications. The iPhone will likely carry Campaign ’10 this year. Usually, the applications that carry election results will only work for the current election and can be discarded at the end of the elections.
Election junkies still have plenty of methods to catch the latest results of local races!
