Whatching the results, by Denis Sarkic via Flickr .

If for some oddball reason you decide not to watch election results with all your favorite LAisters, there are many options for you politicos who want to see where the electoral chips will fall.

While all the major candidates will be in their home state to watch the returns tonight, local events around town have been organized by the major candidates so you can watch in pure bliss/misery with like-minded people you can celebrate/commiserate with.
