US Elections: Links

A selection of useful links for monitoring in the run-up to the US Presidential elections on November 7th.

Presidential Debates:

Commission on Presidential Debates
http://www.debates.org/

Official site for info on the debates; good source for history, qualifications, process, site selection, members.

Electoral College:

There is a great site for MAPS at:

Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections
http://www.uselectionatlas.org
This is a real fountain of information represented graphically with maps, pie charts and tables. It goes back to the election of 1824.

Electoral College--National Archives and Records Administrative-- http://www.nara.gov/fedreg/elctcoll/index.html
This is the official USG repository for all things related to the Electoral college.

Another good site for history and general explanation is The Green Papers at http://www.thegreenpapers.com/

Polling:

Best for day to day reporting is: Polling Report at http://www.pollingreport.com/

Campaigns and Elections--Odds
http://www.campaignline.com/odds/index.cfm
Best track record for professional political analysis and prediction of winners in all Federal contests (that includes Hillary)

Election Night fun:

Two sites that could be of use at election parties are:

An electoral college calculator: http://www.jump.net/~jnhtx/ec/ec.html
Be your own CNN and input winners state by state. Calculations are done by the website showing results on a map and by numerical electoral college vote tallies

The site: http://www.avagara.com/e_c/ec_calc.htm, lets you tally the votes, but does not have the colored map to go along with it.

For a chart of how many electoral college votes will be decided each hour based on time zone and closing time of polls see:
The Green Papers: http://thegreenpapers.com/Electors.html#Clos
