If only every election could be like this one — national candidates we can all feel good about, substantive discussions of the important issues, and heaping doses of old-fashioned idealism and civility. But all good things must come to an end, and this Tuesday, we must sadly bid farewell to Election 2016.
So if you’re as crushed as we are to see it end (or, more likely, if you can’t wait for this whole ordeal to be over), we've got you covered.
Throughout Election Day and into the night, we’ll be providing dispatches from the region’s election parties, up-to-the-minute election results and interviews with candidates.You can find all of that and much more here.
Crosscut's science correspondent, Samantha Larson, will be embedded with the carbon tax campaign, for example, while intrepid reporter Anna Minard will be letting us know how the buffet looks at the state Republicans' big party.
Reporters will be spread out across Puget Sound, so if a buzzed political consultant is overheard trashing their clients, if a balloon drop is especially photogenic, or if a candidate decides to deliver a bitter rant upon losing (or an inspirational speech upon winning), you’ll hear it here, first.
Don't want to spend the evening at home watching Twitter, but not a fan of partisan Election Night parties? We've got you covered there, too.
Crosscut, along with our sister organizations KCTS 9 public television and What's Good 206, will be throwing a party at Frolik in downtown Seattle to celebrate the end of the election season. There will be election-related drink and food specials, Election 2016 bingo, and staff dressed in some combination of pantsuits and strange, blond wigs. Doors open at 4pm. You can RSVP by clicking here.
Keep it locked to Crosscut.com on Election Night, as well as our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and drop by Frolik for a drink and to watch the results come in. We’ll get through this together — whether you want it all to end or not.
