Digital ways to follow Election Day, or just chill with cute animals

Culture
There are plenty of ways to follow the US Presidential Election coverage without being glued to your television or even needing a television at all. Networks like CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX, they all have special election landing pages online and they're streaming live coverage. Plus there are apps like CBS News that have Free live coverage, so you can watch from your computer, phone, or TV streaming device, like a Roku. If you're looking for some uncensored comic relief, Steven Colbert has a live election night special on Showtime at 11 PM. And you can watch with a free month trial of the Showtime app. Full disclosure, CBS is Cnet's parent company and also owns Showtime. NPR is streaming live on it's website and on the NPR Facebook page, you can also access the live stream from apps like Tunein radio. Many major newspapers are also dropping their online subscription walls, so everyone can follow the coverage. But this is an unprecedented election that will shape our future, and you want to follow it in a futuristic way, so why not turn To twitter. Twitter is live streaming election results from Buzzfeed reporters. You can see this in the moments tab on the mobile app or on twitter streaming tv app. If you want to be kept on the edge of your seat with polling data The start up company Votecastr is churning out projection numbers as they come in throughout the day. It's working with news sites Slate and Vice. Now normally, news outlets don't report on numbers so early because you only get a picture of the true data by the end of the day. Many believe that if you report on how one candidate is doing well early in the morning, It could discourage people from going out later and skew the outcome. But hey, if you want to go on a roller coaster ride of raw numbers. And see the game as it unfolds, that's now your right. On the other hand, if you'd rather not deal with the nitty-gritty, nail-biting drama. Politico's website has a interactive map of states turning red and blue, keeping things simple because we all could use a little chill. And if you need some relief from the election stress, perhaps Firefox has the best solution to ease your nerves. The web browser partnered with the San Francisco Zoo and Gardens And it is live streaming the red panda exhibit all day on the Firefox Facebook page. Because if there's one issue this country can all agree on, it's that we need more red panda camps. I'm Bridget Carrie, you can stand on top of the biggest tech stories at cnet.com slash update.
