Election Night is almost here and it’s all hands on deck on all of the networks.
One big decision will be how long each network decides to go into the night. It’s very possible we may not know who the president is on election night and the votes will spill into the following days.
Results are going to take a while.
Here is how each of the big networks are describing their election night coverage.
