Justin’s Election 2016 Follow

With no surprise to anyone who has been following the campaign, the 2016 Presidential election was conceded at the latest time in recent history.

While there was no shortage of election updates, the part that i found the most interesting was the student-journalists on the campus of Eastern Illinois in Charleston, Ill that were also busy providing updates to the public throughout the evening.

The Daily Eastern News staff was busy updating social media and WEIU Newswatch students were providing live updates as well.

Aside from the coverage on the college campus that I attend, the larger networks and papers were also very busy providing grafs and other tools to help pass along information.
