Welcome to Deadspin's Rigged Voter Fraud 2016 Liveblog

After 317 primary debates, far too many GOP candidates, countless repetitions of the word “email,” and one Billy Bush downfall, we have finally made it. My friends, in just a few hours, this godforsaken presidential election will be over.

Which isn’t to say we haven’t had fun—because we have. It’s just that, if this election season were to go on for even a day longer, that beautiful light inside of us would certainly die forever. But we’ve still got a few hours left and a brand new president to coronate. If it’s Hillary Clinton: Thank god. And if it’s Donald Trump: Please send us commissary money for media prison.

Either way, we’ll be blogging all night long, so keep checking back for our running list of election-related posts below. And don’t forget to vote twice. It’s the only way to make sure it sticks.

The Blaze is airing the oddest shoutfest I’ve ever seen. It’s shot in a drawing room that has a translucent panel that appears to be floating in midair on which talking heads appear. The cameras do things like close-ups that move that screen out of focus to put Glenn Beck, on the other side of it, in focus. There are soft fades, dissolves, moving camera work, and all the while one guy is shouting about how Vladimir Putin gets things done and Beck is telling him, “No! Now we sound like Democrats, talking about how Fidel Castro isn’t so bad!” It is genuinely strange and weirdly ambitious.
