There was no one else in the newsroom when I arrived this morning, but that is definitely going to change as we go through the day.  Today promises to be a busy one for our staff and it will definitely show as you watch our coverage tonight.

It all starts on KELOLAND.com.  We have all your Election Day resources in one place that’s easily accessed from our homepage.

29btsElection night is always a big night for a news organization, especially for TV journalists. We spend several hours planning our coverage so our crews are in the right spots to cover the winners and losers when the results come in.

The viewers at home just see the results that scroll across the screen and the live cut-ins to programming, but what you don’t see is the work that happens to bring you those live reports and numbers instantaneously.

I took along a camera during my assignments for the Sioux Falls mayoral race to give you an inside look at what it takes to cover an election.
