Energy is high today in the VentureBeat newsroom as we brace ourselves for the next-to-last gasps of the election news cycle. We’ll be covering web-related election news here on VentureBeat throughout the evening, and you can also catch me, Jolie O’Dell, on San Francisco news station KRON.

I’ll be joining KRON anchor Vicki Liviakis in the studio tonight starting at 8 p.m. Pacific Time, supplementing the station’s national news coverage of the presidential election with quick hits from the Internet — updates from my politically focused sources at Facebook, from Twitter analysts, and from a bevy of social data-tracking tools.

You can watch KRON’s coverage live online, and the KRON team will also be updating the station’s Facebook page and its Twitter account.

And if you see any interesting trends, data, or stories from around the web, ping me on Twitter! We’ll be doing election coverage until midnight Pacific Time.

Now go read up on your candidates and ballot measures, and once you’re good and informed, get out there and vote. From the staff at VentureBeat, we wish all our American readers in particular a good day and a bright tomorrow.
