Interactive Coverage of Election Tuesday

One thing that stood out on Election Tuesday was the amount of interactive coverage of election results, and special social media platforms that encouraged people to vote.

Facebook had a real-time visualization map of the geographic location of voters in the country. When you logged on Facebook on Tuesday I’m sure you saw the “I voted” button on the top of your home page. This likely encouraged voters to get out to the polls.

Election results were reported in an interactive way. The Huffington Post has an interactive  infographic devoted to results state by state, county by county. It covers electoral votes, popular votes, results for House, Senate, Governor, and referendum results. It presents what can be confusing information in a simple, easy to understand map. It’s interesting to see how coverage of the elections have evolved. No longer are we stuck watching the television.

With the election just around the corner I wanted to learn how Southern Miss-ians felt about the candidates. In this slide show I recorded the results of a poll I took around campus asking mostly students, which of the candidates they would share a meal with. I got some interesting results.
