What were your wait times like today?
Waiting on some numbers from Georgia.
We expect them any minute.
Hey -- What do you guys do in the newsroom while waiting for results?
Right now we are collecting data and feeding it to the site. The reporters are trying to pre-write as much as they can based on early returns. In many of the races the reporters write multiple stories based-on different outcomes.
It's getting busy here with Tennessee trickling in and Georgia pouring in.
No wait for me. I think I was the last voter at 7:55pm. No one else in the polling place but the workers, but they said it was the biggest turnout they've seen.
Which polling place?
What do local candidates have planned as they wait tonight?
Ok. I checked with the reporters and many of the candidates are at home.
The school board candidates are home. The democratic city council candidates are gathered at the Choo Choo watching th national returns
Sen. Mullis is at the Walker County Ga. Civic Center and Bruce Coker is at a paint and body shop in Lafayette with friends and family
*player: anyone in particular?
Hixson - Burks Methodist
Thanks for reading. We'll take some lessons with us for the next time we do this. I think a Tennessee Vols chat may be in our future.
We'll probably try this again in a new and improvved version in March for the municipal election.
Thanks for reading and be sure to check Wednesday's TFP for full coverage.
