  • Hi Melissa,

    Thanks for the detailed list of election sites and apps. It’s nice to see a well-rounded list! I’m also glad WSJ and NYT are removing paywalls. It’s the right thing to do.

    …looking forward to a long night !

    Thanks, Chris! I am also planning on a long night. Not sure we will know tonight for sure 😉

    • I certainly hope we know tonight! Don’t think I could handle another 2000 fiasco 🙂

    It’s great to see the President is still in the White House after so much animosity against him. Looks like he’ll have four more years to show us what he’s got. Those spewing all kinds of trash against the man should pad themselves on the shoulder for a job well done.

  • Thank you for the list. I was able to use a few to monitor the elections. I wanted to suggest a couple of my own but, it’s too late. Good luck to Obama and hope he doesn’t ruin the chances of SEO and social media marketing. By the way, in the next elections, election SEO is still an untapped market, though it’s a seasonal one at best.
