Tonight, we will try something new for an election night: We'll run a live chat from the Herald newsroom.
We have been using CoverItLive's live chat system for the past few months, starting in late July during the annual Columbia Cup hydroplane races, then each Friday night since high school football began.
But tonight will be our first live chat during a news event. I'll be joined on the chat with Executive Editor Ken Robertson and Managing Editor Rick Larson, and some other folks might join in as time allows.
We will provide some breaking news, some analysis and some answer to questions. We look forward to having you join us for this next step in providing another level of news and information about the Tri-Cities and Mid-Columbia.
The chat window is below. You can sign up to receive an email alert for when the chat launches (which should be about 5 p.m.).
