Election Day is finally here (buh-bye negative campaigning!) and by now, you know where to vote and you know who's running -- and hopefully, you also know who you're voting for. Now, you want to know who's winning.

Fortunately, you can get up-to-date information on all the nationwide elections -- and find out important things like if pot will be legal in California, and if voters actually bought Christine O'Donnell's "I'm not a witch" act.

Check out these 6 comprehensive resources throughout Election Day to find out how your candidates are doing:

  1. The Washington Post: Look here to monitor elections in all 50 states, broken down by region. Also read up on why this year's race is the most expensive midterm election ever.

  2. Twitter: Check today's most popular tags, #Election, #ElectionDay, and #GoVote, for continuous election coverage. Experiencing problems at the polls in NYC? Mayor Michael Bloomberg is asking voters to use the #NYCvotes hash-tag instead of contacting city officials directly. Talk about the technology revolution!

  4. CNN: It's the perfect landing pad for all of your Election Day questions. Check its polling center for updated results and standings, get the basics including who's running (and average salary info), or keep things local with the "My Election" tab.
