The Design Desk Election Night Graphics

By Anne Van Wagener
Design Editor / Adjunct Faculty

Election night is a crazy night to make sense of a blizzard of information. And readers rely heavily on charts, maps, and other graphics for election information.

How you handle them will make the difference between just looking crazy and enjoying the wild ride.
