"Big board" midterm election display options?
November 6, 2018 9:30 AM   Subscribe

Looking for an airport arrivals/departures-style display to follow tonight's election returns as they come in.

During the last midterms in 2014, NPR had a great Chrome Cast app (that also worked on desktop browsers) called the Election Party (warning: auto-play audio... mute your speakers).

It basically showed the races in a "big board" format similar to arrivals/departures monitors at the airport. I haven't been able to find anything like that for another election since then.

We're having an elections party tonight, and I'd like to stick something like that up on the projector instead of live TV on mute. Has anyone developed something like a Roku stream for the 2018 elections, or should I just set the projector to Upshot/PBS/cable news?

@Exceptional_Hubris Thanks for that awesome resource, and I'll definitely keep that tab up on the laptop, but I'm looking for something a bit more display-friendly for the projector.
