I mentioned all this yesterday, but as a reminder: Political Animal will be providing pretty extensive election day, election night, and post-election coverage. Tonight, beginning at 6:00 PM EST, I’ll be live-blogging the returns, and will go as long as I can stay awake (this is one time it’s helpful to be on Pacific Time!). We’ll have meaty post-election analysis tomorrow (continuing for the rest of the week), which could begin tonight if the shape of things firms up early.

Several PA friends will be pitching in with posts today, tonight and tomorrow, including Kathleen Geier, Simon van Zuylen-Wood, Rich Yeselson, and WaMo’s own Ryan Cooper, and perhaps others. We know there are a lot of sources for news and analysis out there today, but hope you’ll treat this as your anchor in a crazy sea of data and words. And as always, please liberally use the comment threads to offer your own thoughts, reactions and vents, and to talk with each other.
