October 29, 2014
AP announces coverage plans for midterm elections
With 36 states holding gubernatorial contests and control of the
U.S. Senate in play, the stakes are high in midterm elections on
Tuesday, when The Associated Press will be uniquely positioned to count
the votes and report the results.
AP has reporters working in every statehouse throughout
the year, and more than 5,000 stringers will be deployed across the
country on election night to help AP
Election Services gather local vote counts. No other national news
organization can match AP’s
footprint, on-the-ground knowledge or the deep expertise of our
elections team in Washington.
AP’s coverage began long before the first ballots were cast. The national
team, headed by U.S. Political Editor David Scott,
endeavors to break news, while providing clarity and crucial context.
In the runup to Tuesday, AP will distribute stories on early voting and
key ballot measures, as well as explainers on what to look for on
Election Day and analyses on how the outcome will affect the final two
years of President Barack Obama's presidency and how the results may
alter the political landscape for 2016.
And as the votes roll in on election night, it's
AP that will count them. The news industry and the public turn to
AP, a not-for-profit cooperative, to provide fast and accurate results
on national, state and local races and key ballot initiatives. AP’s vote count
is considered by news organizations and the audiences they serve to be
the definitive source of race results.
“Calling races, from the national level to state legislatures, is a
vital function AP provides to members and customers,” said AP
Washington Bureau Chief Sally Buzbee. “Being able to accurately and
quickly call those statewide and state-level races is critical to their
ability to provide strong election night coverage for their audiences
around the world.”
Among other highlights:
- AP will provide high-definition video reports on races key to
determining control of the Senate and the governor's races in Florida
and Wisconsin. In addition, AP political reporters will give on-camera
analyses. AP Radio will broadcast live with results at 20 and 40
minutes past each hour.
- Exclusive photos of the elections are available via AP
- AP will also offer an array of mobile-friendly content, such as
an interactive map and a real-time documentary-in-miniature, using
Instagram’s 15-second video capabilities to focus on AP editors and
reporters as Election Day unfolds to give readers a better
understanding of how AP covers elections.
- As part of AP’s ongoing efforts to spotlight member coverage, AP
Mobile is featuring local
newspapers, including the Alaska
Dispatch News, The Denver Post, The Des Moines Register, The Wichita
Eagle, The Detroit News and The Charlotte Observer. AP will also
produce a dynamic feed of race calls, photos and videos on the AP
Mobile news app for iOS.
- AP Global Media Services will serve an array of visiting TV
broadcasters by operating live
positions in New York, California, Washington and
