Here's where to keep an eye on Fla. voting



In collaboration with seven other Florida newspapers, we have assembled an interactive map of Twitter reports from polling places across the state. The most recent posts appear first. Click the arrows to see the next, or previous post. Check it out here (and Firefox seems to work better than Explorer).

And don't forget Sayfie's reports from select precincts here. is also getting a makeover for election night.

Around 7 p.m., when the polls close, we will add several features to our homepage to make the election information you want just a mouse click away. Center stage will be devoted to the headlines capturing the most important election-day developments and an interactive electoral map of the United States. Mouse over any state to see whether they are leaning red or blue. Or click on Florida to see which presidential candidate is leading in your county. Then use the tabs at the top of the map to navigate to legislative races and get updates on state ballot initiatives.

For local results, browse through the county links below the map. Want to know who is winning school board or county sheriff races? Click here.

In the upper right-hand corner of the homepage, click on the bird to see the Florida Votes map: a collaborative project bringing together many of Florida’s major newspapers to document what is going on at the polls on election day.

There also will be photo galleries, video and news updates from our blogs.

Check back often for updates. We’ll be updating the news all night.
