It's happening. After a year of multiple disasters and an ongoing global pandemic, the live election results will finally start trickling in tonight. Whether you've been practicing a news fast to avoid stress or embracing doomscrolling, it'll be hard to entirely escape political coverage this week. And since misinformation and incomplete analyses are likely to pop up, Bustle has compiled a list of trustworthy reporters covering the 2020 election.
There's a good chance results won't be available on Nov. 3, as unprecedented numbers of mail-in ballots are counted around the country. Luckily, these reporters are in it for the long haul, and will be sharing updates on both the big picture and local minutiae. We've made a point to include reporters on the ground in high-tension states, those covering issues that may be decided by this year's vote, and those who have been on the frontlines of this year's racial reckoning. It's sure to be one of the most consequential presidential races ever. Follow along.
