Election Morning.

It feels almost like Christmas morning -- if you're a newsie.

The Vindicator is set to go for the big day.

Use to keep abreast of all the news bits sifting in throughout the day.

As the polls close tonight, watch for us on to start filtering through some of the results.

Monday night, we were testing a live video feed from the newsroom. The thought is -- you can watch the newsroom online if you wish. But more importantly, as news breaks, we'll come right to the camera and start talking about it to the best of our abilities.

We're not promising pretty with this video feed, but we're promising pretty informative. That is -- if our testing was successful. If it works, we'll be loud about it, so watch for it.

As for Wednesday's paper, we've established two press times to allow for the most complete results.

We will first start printing at 1:30 a.m. for Wednesday home delivery papers. We will priint an updated edition at 3 a.m. that will go to all the stores and newsracks. So -- if there are significant changes in election results after 1 a.m., we are hopeful you will have them available to you via a Vindicator at your nearest store.

Of course -- if the dramatic news happens after 3 a.m. -- well then stick with us online as we'll keep you posted there.

Please remember that you make news, too. Call us at 747-5500 with any election mishaps or neat tales from the polling booths.

Hang in there ... we almost have a new president.
