Hi guys. In 2004, my friend and I got together to follow the US election. We used a number of websites including http://www.tradesports.com/ It provides futures that you can buy based on potential outcome. They have a whole bunch for the US election.

Also, if you are interested in the US election, you might want this Google Gadget they created:

http://www.google.com/ig/add?moduleurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tradesports.com%2Faav2%2Fghp%2Fquoteboard.xml

It shows the most actively traded futures, which is currently dominated by the election, so you'll be able to keep tabs on it throughout the day and see which races are considered important (the controversial ones will have more volatility and more trades).

Be sure to vote today!
Andrew
