2. The Slate link is doing nada.

The Vice News live stream seems to be up here though: https://news.vice.com/story/live-election-day-turnout-results-with-votecastry?cl=fp

Says it will start broadcasting at 9 AM ET.

4. No raw access

By the sound of things on Twitter, the data will be relayed in tiny little nuggets by talking heads on blogs and live streams, there will be no end user raw data access we can tab through ourselves... disappointing.

5. They have some Colorado data

Early voting data from Colorado

The data:
•Clinton: 46 percent
•Trump: 44 percent
•Johnson: 7.2 percent

What it means: Colorado allows voters to mail in their ballots early, which gives us some early voting data to analyze. Of the 1.53 million total votes cast that we’ve been able to look at, Clinton is leading Trump 46 percent to 44 percent.

6. Johnson's percentage is pretty huge

For a third party candidate.

7. I think he'll do comparatively well in the Western states

and hopefully that will also hold down Trump's vote. But this is very early--a first wave.

9. I wonder how many states he'll have more than the difference

between Clinton and Trump.

That will be another excuse for whoever loses. The right wing still likes to blame Ross Perot and of course we blame Nader.

14. Well...

Maybe they'll learn to choose a less divisive and vile candidate. It's not like they didn't have options in their circus.

15. Keep this in mind

I know some of you are very anxious so remember that rural areas usually report first and they will have a lot of trump in there. You won't get much of an idea of urban areas till later this afternoon or early evening. Some large metro areas like cleavland or Miami may not have totals till tonight.

16. They seem to be assigning almost all of NV unaffiliated voters to Trump.

If we trust the Ralston data, that 70000+ straight D to R lead has been dropped to 7000 here.

18. Don't pay attention to any numbers you see before the first polls close.

 

Good grief. Votecastr has zero history in the field.
