ABC Election Night coverage with iPad app

The ABC app for the iPad has come up with a nice little update for those of you who are into tracking elections as they are happening. It's not always easy to keep track of who is winning in each race through television or radio but now with the ABC app for iPad it will not only make tracking the election easier and more mobile, but will allow you to run through what-if scenarios for the races.

The states will change in color to represent weather it has gone Republican or Democrat, and it tracks the Senate races as well as the House of Representatives. So now you can watch whatever you want to on election night as still follow your favorite political party or candidate and see how they are doing on an important night. Best of all is that this app is free and not only can you track your election results all in one place, you can also continue to watch your favorite ABC shows as well.

Will you be utilizing this new feature in the ABC app on your iPad?
