All eyes on election maps! Yes, they could be misleading. And even widely misleading. But it can be at least so fascinating to look at them, especially at times like this! So, we have curated a list of over twenty reputable resources — as of now, to be precise, 24 and counting! — where you can watch the live results of the 2020 United States Presidential election in compelling data visualizations. At the same time, it is a great chance for you to investigate and understand how election maps (and some other graphics) can look and work in practice.

Vote counts may be different on different platforms and update as more data becomes available out there — it’s absolutely okay. The election results are still partial. Over the coming days, all numbers will be adjusted to match the real, final vote count. Just in case: We’ve added only reliable sources — notable, reputable media outlets. …
