UPDATE: I’m twittering tonight, following some of the feeds from college media and others. You can follow CICM here.
I’m going to try to highlight some of the student efforts taking place today and tonight. With record voter turnout expected in a historic election, there should be plenty of angles to cover. This post will be updated with new links as they come in. If your student media organization is doing something with multimedia/online reporting for this election, drop a comment below or send me an e-mail – scmurley -at- gmail.com and I’ll put it in here.
Just because I’m in the spirit of continuous election coverage, I’ve included a Google map Gadget that is supposed to have continuously updated election results coming in in a few hours. (via TechPresident). UPDATE: I’ve also embedded a Google map with links to all the schools mentioned below.

If you’re interested in the professional coverage of election day, here’s a pretty good round-up of online sources for news from the New York Observer. Megan Taylor has another list of election-related sources for the addicts among us.
