Election Coverage Plans

Posted October 31, 2008, 11:57 a.m.

In-keeping with past years, Off on a Tangent will be providing live election coverage on November 4 starting at 7pm EST. Coverage will include live results for all races in which I have made endorsements, as well as a running list of relevant local and national news. Off on a Tangent results will be based primarily on actual returns as-published by government agencies and media exit-polling and projections. This ‘raw data’ will be combined with independent analysis in making any projections.

Coverage will continue with constant updates from 7pm until all covered races have projected winners or 1am, whichever comes first. In the event that any races remain un-called at 1am, I will resume updates on the morning of November 5 as time permits.

While I have my biases, I always strive to make my live coverage as accurate and reliable as possible. I will err on the side of caution at all times without regard for party affiliations or my personal political preferences, but—at the same time—I won’t hesitate to make a projection when a winner is clear. Per site policy, candidates will be listed alphabetically by last name.

Stay tuned!

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
