Today’s U.S. Senate runoffs pitting Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock against Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are, much like the November election, likely to be extremely close, and depending on how long it takes to count absentee ballots, winners may not be declared tonight.
But in case somebody doesn’t text you the results or hand-deliver a postcard to your door telling you who won, and you have somehow managed to avoid the wall-to-wall coverage on cable news and the internet, here are some ways to keep up.
The Georgia Secretary of State’s Office will be posting live results as they are reported by counties.
FiveThirtyEight is live-blogging the contest, among other political websites.
The New York Times‘ stress-inducing election needles will be estimating each candidate’s chances of winning in real time.
If you get tired of national pundits mispronouncing “DeKalb,” two excellent sources of Georgia political news are the AJC and Georgia Public Broadcasting. The Georgia Recorder, a nonprofit online news outlet, also has a live blog tonight.
For Twitter users, some accounts to follow include Brad Raffensperger’s feisty aide Gabriel Sterling, GPB election reporter Stephen Fowler, AJC political reporters Greg Bluestein, Jim Galloway and Tia Mitchell, data guru Ryan Anderson, Clayton County reporter Robin Kemp, the Athens Politics Nerd Chris Dowd and, of course, yours truly.
