Tune in to Rockbridge Report for Local Election Coverage

Rockbridge Report, the award-winning multimedia Web site produced by the Department of Journalism and Mass Communications, will launch its election-day coverage at 4 p.m. Tuesday with preview stories and accounts of voter turnout in the area. The site will be updated throughout the evening, and a new comprehensive site will be relaunched at about 8 p.m. and then again when the results are final. In addition, there will be two live updates on Cable 18 (Lexington cable system) at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. According to Brian Richardson, head of the department, the coverage will involve five classes of students plus about a dozen faculty members. Richardson says that the staff will be looking closely at the Rockbridge County presidential returns as an early indicator of how things might play out throughout the Commonwealth.
