Record Breaking Election

This data will be refined in the coming days. So far, here's what we know.
  • More than 130 million people voted yesterday, at least eight million more than in 2004.
  • Obama won 66% of the 18-29 year-old vote, compared to Kerry winning 54%.
  • Virginia and Indiana both turned blue for the first time since 1964.
  • Candidates spent $5.3 billion during the Campaign 2008 season!
ElectBlue projected Obama to win 364 electoral votes and McCain 174. It appears our projection will hit the nail on the head when the final tallies come in from Missouri and North Carolina.
