Early results from around the U.S. are expected to start coming in around 9 p.m. RIT organizers hope to make the viewing party a collaborative and innovative one. People are encouraged to blog, create apps and games about the political process.

The event is sponsored by the Lab for Technological Literacy, the Department of Political Science and the Simone Center for Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
