Election Day Must-Reads: One Last Hurrah

It’s been a long road to Election Day (remember all of those GOP primary debates that began in the summer of 2011?), but the time has finally arrived for us to cast our ballots and hold our breath.

That Election Day is tomorrow hasn’t slowed the flow of stories and infographics. We’ve sorted through the polling predictions and last-ditch campaign announcements to find the coolest coverage you don’t want miss:

512 Paths to the White House: This nifty interactive feature from the New York Times allows curious voters to delve into the details of the candidates’ path to the White House, depending on how the voting unfolds.

Electoral Map Challenge: Slate devised a challenging quiz that invites political junkies to guess the year for 12 electoral maps from presidential elections since 1860. True to the process, each correct answer is worth 45 electoral votes, and you must score 270 to be victorious.

2012 Election Season in two Minutes: For the most fun farewell to the election season, CNN has graciously recapped all the highlights—momentous announcements and the best gaffes—starting with the earliest stages of the GOP primaries. Though Romney’s “binders of women” remark is still fresh in our minds, it’s been a while since we’ve been reminded of Rick Perry’s “Oops” moment.

There will be an abundance of ways to keep up-to-date with real-time results tomorrow night, either via social media or on the web with sites like Politico, which will be hosting a live election map. Happy voting!
