Sites for election junkies

I’ve been checking fairly regularly for the last 2 weeks. The votemaster (aka Andrew S. Tanenbaum, a professor of computer science at the Vrije Universiteit in Holland) tracks electoral votes state by state based on polls from across the political spectrum.

Today, CNET published a story saying that Google plans to release its Google Earth election mashup, a new data layer available on the Google Earth appliance (download Google Earth here). “Google Earth 2006 election resource tool indicates the country’s 436 congressional districts with stars on the popular 3D map of the country. Clicking on a star pops open a bubble window that has information on the candidates in that race.”

Anyone know of other election tracking sites? Please post them in the comments.
