Is there any place that's offering an alert

When Biden goes over the top? I'm getting sick of hanging on the news, but I sure would like to go out and honk my horn like crazy at the very minute. And I would leave my phone on to be able to do that.

1. My Iphone sent a notice when Biden flipped AZ.

I am sure I will get another notice if Biden reaches 270 EC votes.

4. Would you be so kind as to share with the OP how they can get it too?

I do believe that is what they were asking, no? I would, but I don't have that set up myself. ty!

5. I don't think I set anything to have that.

I don't even know how to turn it off when the "news" is not what I wanted lol

Edit: I think it's the news app that notifies me. Try "settings" > scroll down to "news" > "notifications" > "allow notifications"

3. I sent a text to some of my family members.

I asked them to text me when Biden is declared the winner. I have a lot of political junkies in my family so I know at least one of them will know the minute it happens.

6. I can tell you that the DT lead in Ga is now closing-

Some are saying 15k votes left to count in Dem area, with provisionals to count and military.

7. I did a Google search for Election

On the results page the top result is the AP map of the US with Biden & Trump and number each has of electoral college votes. You can hover your cursor over the map to see percentages and how many votes each got in each state. Undeclared states are in pink and light blue. The undeclared states are in a chart below with more information.

This way I don't have to watch the news to quickly check where things stand. It automatically updates when anything changes.

And have my phone yell at me when Biden goes over the top.
