What's the BlueNC election night plan?
Everybody dried off and warmed up? As the night progresses, I'll be posting headlines in this space and links to news here at BlueNC and elsewhere. I'll keep this post updated as frequently as I can, but I won't be going into much depth here.
In the box to the right, entitled "BlueNC Returns Threads," I'll provide links to BlueNC threads focused on specific topics: NC-11, NC-08, state races, national news, etc. These will stay on top, so that you can stay on top of the news. And, of course, the BlueNC community will be keeping it live in blog posts and comments.
One more thing: because we're spreading this out over a few threads, you may find the Tracker useful. Logged-in users who click the "track changes" link (in the blue banner at the top of the page) will see a list of threads with the most-recently-updated at the top and a column showing how many comments are new to you on each thread. Reloading the Tracker page is a good way for members to stay on top of comments and updates. (And if you're not a member, why not? It's free, for Pete's sake!)
I'll be back with headlines as they start coming in.
