Tomorrow, November 8, one of those two candidates could become President of the United States of America! Millions are going to head to the polls to cast their ballots for them — or a third party candidate, or a write-in for Vermin Supreme.
And once those ballots are casted, the waiting game begins. Don’t sit at home and pace back and forth; watch the election results come in live! Thankfully, there are innumerable ways to watch election coverage on November 8, and for free. Voters can tune in both online and on television, through social media and traditional news.
