Midterms: Matthews & Olbermann Anchoring For 12 Hours On MSNBC
http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser /

MSNBC is already running nonstop political coverage from 9am to 10pm through Election Day. Special programming:

On Sunday, Hardball will be live at 7pm. On Monday, Hardball will be live at 10pm, followed by "Decision 2006" with Joe Scarborough at 11pm.

On Tuesday, marathon coverage begins at 6pm. Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann will anchor from MSNBC HQ. Coverage will run all night, straight through 6am.

Scarborough and Tucker Carlson "will analyze the results with a panel of political reporters and experts" including Andrea Mitchell, Howard Fineman, Bob Shrum, Pat Buchanan, Eugene Robinson, and Carl Quintanilla.

MSNBC.com will have a "Democracy Dashboard" on the home page with "a full spectrum of self-refreshing results, including a map with state-by-state rollover results, and returns on Senate, House and gubernatorial races, organized down to the county level. In addition, users can find balance-of-power graphics for the House and Senate and instant-message style tips to alert them to developing stories."

Making Your Vote Count:

NBC News and MSNBC will also be tracking any potential problems that voters may have around the country through an exclusive agreement with InfoVoter Technologies, whose nationwide toll free voter alert line will allow voters to quickly report voting problems to election officials anywhere in the country. Voters across the nation will be able to call the MYVOTE1 Voter Alert Line (1-866-MYVOTE1) to report irregularities or problems at their individual polling places. The alert line will automatically patch callers to their local election offices as well as give voters an opportunity to record a brief description for NBC News/MSNBC of the problems they are facing.
NBC News' Chip Reid will report on voting irregularities and the new voting machine technologies that have recently been installed in many counties throughout the United States.
InfoVoter Technologies - a bipartisan joint venture representing VoterLink Data Systems and Chesapeake enterprises - will manage the voter contact technology along with a team of bipartisan analysts at MSNBC's Washington D.C. headquarters.

NBC News Coverage on Cable: MSNBC

In an election that could lead to a seismic shift in political power, MSNBC is the undisputed place for politics. Beginning today, Monday, October 30 through November 7, MSNBC will be devoted to non-stop political coverage as "Decision 2006: Battleground America" coverage continues from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm, ET, every day. "Hardball" host Chris Matthews, "Scarborough Country" host Joe Scarborough, "Tucker" host Tucker Carlson and "Countdown" host Keith Olbermann will anchor extended coverage throughout the week, along with Williams, Russert, Gregory and NBC News' Chief Foreign correspondent Andrea Mitchell, to bring viewers the latest information and interviews with candidates, journalists, party officials and experts.

Leading into Election Night, MSNBC will present a special, live edition of "Hardball with Chris Matthews" Sunday, November 5 at 7:00 pm, ET, from MSNBC election headquarters. As the candidates wrap up their final weekend of campaigning, Matthews will review the latest polls and analyze up-to-the-minute information coming out of key battleground states. This special edition of "Hardball" will be carried live on several NBC affiliates around the country, as will the 7:00 pm, ET, edition of "Hardball with Chris Matthews" on Monday, November 6 including WNBC in New York and KNBC in Los Angeles. Also on Monday, November 6, leading into Election Day, MSNBC will present live late-night editions of "Hardball with Chris Matthews" from 10:00 pm. to 11:00 pm, ET, and a special hour of "Decision 2006" coverage from 11:00 pm to midnight, ET, hosted by Joe Scarborough.

1. I hope this kind of coverage will help Dems.
Midterms are traditionally light on turn out but this may fire up the voters.

5. This should Be Interesting... Glad About KO... But YeeGads
I'm not sure I want to peek!!! I must say that "Tweety" was aggressive with the Florida Debate tonight!

Max Linn... please do Florida a favor, step aside and throw your hat in with Davis! I KNOW you can't stand Crist, even if you claim to be Independent and are running as one, there once was a time when (R) was behind your name!!! What does that say for Pissy Pants Crist???
