The Election night is traditionally a big night for the AP, primary provider of results data. The template for the print graphics are ready and tagged weeks in advance. Our key developer for that application is John Balestrieri who is our Election guru since 2002. Carrie Osgood was working with him this year on designing the hundreds of graphics moving before, after, and during the night. In attachment, this is the centerpiece graphic, a 6-col graphic I designed with them. Published also during the night was a popular Flash application. Troy Thibodeaux in charge of the back-end, Beth Davidz for the front-end. Of course, many other people contributed to the final results and thanks to their efforts, the night went on smoothly for on-line as well as for the newspapers print version.
