What you need to know about Community Impact Newspaper's election night coverage

We hope you’ve been enjoying our extensive local election coverage over the last few weeks, which has included everything from candidate profiles to campaign finance reports.

We’ve organized all of that content on a useful page where you can find ballots, polling locations, Q&A's and more at communityimpact.com/vote.

But the best is yet to come.

On Election Day this Tuesday, we will transform our homepage into an election headquarters. We’ll be adding a variety of new features that will help you understand what's happening with local races. Here are the highlights:

Things to know: The left side of the page will have a stream of insights and updates posted by reporters throughout the day. You’ll likely see polling location photos, details about watch parties, tweets from election offices and info on who is leading races. It’s the place to go to keep up with the most important, interesting news of the day.


Ballots & results: Find a list of relevant, local races on the right side of the page. When early voting results are released after 7 p.m., the status of each race will be displayed in a bar charts.


Tweets: If you’re interested in following our reporters on Twitter throughout the day and evening, there will be a stream of tweets from throughout the metro on the right side of our homepage.


And of course, we’ll be posting stories throughout the night as the results come in.

This is obviously an important election. We recognize the results of this election will impact the future of our communities, and that’s why we continue to provide what we hope has been useful, relevant information. Tuesday night will be no different.
