Debate: Should We Have Real-time Voting Projections on Election Day?


On election night in the United States, most news organizations won’t report results until the polls close.

It is commonly thought that publishing information on voting projections would change voters’ actions and possibly change the election results. Others think that voters should have the same access to information as news organizations. Listen to this story and then debate whether you think we should have real-time voting projections on election day.
