Today’s Election Day. Again, I hope everyone’s remembered to go vote.

As for watching the election returns, there’ll be plenty of places to turn to for such. Cord cutters might want or need alternatives to the traditional TV coverage. Below are some of my suggested ways of watching the results, either on your computer or on your mobile device.

Variety reports that CNN will be streaming results on its website, without requiring a pay TV authentication. CNN’s had somewhat gimmicky results reporting in the past, such as its use of holograms for election night in 2008.

Twitter plans to steam up with BuzzFeed to live stream election results.
