Join me in this Google Sheet:
   http://po.st/electionhashtags

Let's gather the - BEST - hashtags on Twitter, Facebook, etc. to soak in
the election night results and chatter.

I have one sheet for US national political/election hashtags and one for
states.

Add the ones for your state now!

I have a proposal, if you are talking about results from a state, add a
hashtag like:

#VoteOH for Ohio, etc.

This way we can easily tune into reports from the field ...

Also, how about promoting #letmevote with Facebook Live for people to
record/broadcast that they are having troubles voting. Add #VoteOH (etc.)
and you'd be more visible locally.

Like #votingselfie (and #ballotselfie ) is being used, but a bit more news
worthy.

You can search for Facebook Live videos by dropping the # people the
hashtag text.

Examples:

https://www.facebook.com/search/str/trump/videos-live
https://www.facebook.com/search/str/clinton/videos-live

The map of "live" Facebook Live broadcasts is here:
