Date: 

Tuesday, November 6, 2012 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Location: 

Google Hangout

Join us on Tuesday night for first-ever OrangePolitics' live, online election show! We will webcast a discussion of the election results starting with a preview at 7:00pm on Tuesday, and continuing on each half hour until the results are in (usually by 9pm at the latest). In addition to the OP Posse (Molly De Marco, Damon Seils, Jeff Miles, and myself) we will have several elected (newly and otherwise) officials and transit advocates on with us to talk about the results and what they mean for Orange County.

Guests are also welcome to come "on the air" with us during the show and post in the live chat room via Google Plus or just watch the show live on YouTube - all from the comfort of your own home or favorite victory party. Here's an invitation to the event: https://plus.google.com/events/c3v2oph4m70p4dmb9890k3ecm0s 

We will be using Google Hangouts to do this, which is free and easy but requires a Google Plus account. You can join in from any computer or laptop with a web cam. Here's more about the technology: http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts/onair.html 

More details to come as we figure it all out!

Where to watch and how to participate

This is our first time doing this using Google Hangouts on Air, so I just want to let folks know that you don't have to use Google or even leave OP to watch this. I'll post a link and/or embed the live video when we get started on Tuesday. You can find that (and any video we do ever) in our OPTV archive. We would love to have you join us on OPTV, you can actually participate (ie: share your head, voice, and screen) if you RSVP to the event on Google Plus.
