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 reporting 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 Images.

  • 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 election coverage from member 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 stand-up positions in New York, California, Washington and Kentucky.

CNN Reporters in Full Force for 2014 Midterm Election Coverage

  Network Brings Magic Wall to Viewers’ Fingertips

Empire State Building to Display CNN’s Election Results

With the U.S. Senate up for grabs, CNN’s Election Night in America will provide viewers with the most comprehensive coverage and up-to-the-minute election results from all the key states and races across the country and from the Election Center in Washington. From Alaska to Iowa to Georgia, CNN’s unmatched political reporters will delve deep into the races that are pivotal in determining the power shift in the U.S. Senate.

CNN anchors Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper will headline the network’s coverage, beginning at 5 p.m., along with chief Washington correspondent and anchor Jake Tapper providing political expertise and analysis on gubernatorial projections and candidate speeches throughout the evening. Chief national correspondent John King will once again utilize the “CNN Magic Wall,” featuring new advancements that include improved visual performance and graphics customized to communicate data results in real-time. Kicking off the day’s Election coverage, Early Start anchors John Berman and Christine Romans will begin special coverage at 5 a.m., followed by New Day with Chris Cuomo, Michaela Pereira and Alisyn Camerota at 6 a.m. Throughout the day, more than two-dozen reporters will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at where voters cast their ballots and where the votes are counted. Viewers will also get a peek inside campaign headquarters across the country of more than a dozen candidates.

Chief political analyst Gloria Borger and senior political analyst David Gergen will join the team to provide in-depth analysis as exit polls are released and projections are made. In addition, chief congressional correspondent Dana Bash and chief political correspondent Candy Crowley will offer their campaign experience and insight late into the evening. Bash will also have rare access inside the war rooms at both the RNC and the DNC as the political parties track results and data from around the country.

CNN’s weekly host Michael Smerconish, whose reporting is not wedded to ideology or party lines, will provide thoughtful insights during the network’s coverage. CNN’s broad stable of political commentators—including Paul Begala, Jay Carney, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter, Newt Gingrich, Van Jones, Kevin Madden, Ana Navarro—will also be on hand to offer unique perspectives as the results roll in and until the last vote is counted.

Correspondent Tom Foreman will take viewers inside the virtual Senate and the U.S House, allowing viewers to visualize the balance of power in the Congress and foresee the consequences of a Democratic or Republican-controlled Senate.

On Election Night, CNN will take over the Empire State Building to display U.S. Senate vote results to New Yorkers first-hand as well as to viewers nationwide via CNN’s telecast. As the Senate results are projected and allocated to candidates, a vertical LED-illuminated “meter” located atop the spire of the building will ascend in either red or blue—reflective of the party. Once an illuminated color—red or blue—reaches the top of the spire, that party will take control of the Senate. Beginning at 6 p.m. and throughout the evening, viewers are invited to be a part of CNN’s coverage by tagging photos of the Empire State Building with #CNNElection on either Instagram and Twitter.

The Washington Post to Transform Homepage for 2014 Midterms

Coverage of the 2014 midterms will take over The Washington Post homepage on the evening of November 4. As voting results arrive, users visiting will see the new Election Live Stream focused solely on midterm-related content– including updates from around the country, dynamic election maps, interactive graphics, continuous analysis, and in-depth stories and videos.

“On election night, we’re rolling out a new way to present comprehensive coverage of races across the country. We’ll be able to see how this display works and potentially apply it to future news events or breaking stories,” said Kevin Merida, Managing Editor. “The takeover display allows us to provide information our readers want front and center, including ongoing analysis from our top political journalists and other writers, who have been dispatched around the country to provide live updates from statewide races.”

In addition to races in D.C., Md. and Va., Post reporters will be in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Hampshire, and North Carolina. Ongoing analysis will be provided by Dan Balz, Chris Cillizza, Karen Tumulty, Robert Costa and many others. Columnists Michael Gerson, Charles Krauthammer, Kathleen Parker and Eugene Robinson will offer commentary.

The Post’s Election Live Stream will exist on desktop and mobile web, making it easy for anyone to access. Users will also have an option to switch to the original homepage to access a variety of non-election stories.
