    So Tuesday I will be away from my computer, tv and radio. All I will have with me is my iphone. Besides the Election App from the app store, does anyone know of a really good website that is optimized for iphones that will be giving constant updates on the election Tuesday night?

    CNN.com has a great site that will automatically detect you're on an iphone and adjust the site accordingly for you. If not, the address is m.cnn.com They'll for sure have up to date election night coverage.

    Also there are Associated Press and NY Times apps for free on the app store that will probably have good and up to date info.

    Politico.com and realclearpolitics.com also good orginal and aggregated coverage of election news, although it's more narrative and less of the "breaking news" type so the above 3 probably best. But politico and RCP good for getting some interesting analysis and insight. Neither of their sites are optimized for iphone but they do load up ok generally.

    With CNN, the AP, and NY Times you should have some quite good info. best

    Thanks. I am a really big political junkie so I planned at being at a rally but then I just found out that I wouldn't be able to so I was scrambling to make sure I can get my fix. lol.

    If you use twitter, add "politicalticker". It's CNN's political Twitter feed. Great for breaking news and the such. And when you click on the URLs they send out, they open in a mobile version of CNN.
