The 2018 US midterm elections on Tuesday have garnered plenty of attention on platforms like Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Facebook. If you don’t have access to cable TV, these sites can also keep you up to date on election results.
Here’s how you can catch the latest election updates from your phone or computer.
A handful of news sites are taking to YouTube to share live coverage of the election. CBS News, ABC News, NBC News and PBS Newshour all have livestreams on the video site. (Editors’ note: CNET is owned by CBS.)
Yes, Snapchat’s in on this, too. Peter Hamby, host of Snapchat’s Good Luck America, is leading the platform’s coverage starting at 6 p.m. ET.
