U.S. Election 2020: The most relaxing way to watch the results

Watch live—and in peace and quiet—as we colour in the 2020 presidential election results as they roll in

This has been perhaps the most stressful election in U.S. history. So, here’s an alternative to the pundits, flashy graphics and noise of election night. Watch as we colour in the results of the 2020 election on an actual map. It’s the quiet, soothing way to take in tonight’s historic outcome, whatever it is.

The live-colouring is now over. But feel free to still watch above or straight on YouTube.

Quality journalism is not free. It’s built on the hard work and dedication of professional reporters, editors and production staff. We understand the pandemic is likely taking a financial toll on you and your family, so we do not make this ask lightly.
