Google, Twitter and Twittervision Launch Super Tuesday Google Maps Mashup

Google Super TuesdayGoogle, Twitter and Twittervision have teamed up to provide a mashup that shows election-related tweets from around the nation.
They don't call it Super Tuesday for nothing! Today marks an exciting day in the race to the U.S. Presidency: voters in 24 states will choose their party candidates. This will be the largest number of primaries taking place at one time in the history of the U.S. electoral system.

We've joined forces with Twitter to give you instant updates on Super Tuesday. Instead of sitting on the sidelines, you can send a simple text message about your voting experience. Huge turnout? Taking too long in line? Did you just vote for the first time? We want it all, if you can keep to 140 characters or less. (And if candidates can keep their posts to 140 characters, anyone can.)

Throughout the day, you can watch Twitter updates from across the country:
You can also keep track of the election at @Politics (run by the Media Cynic) and at Politweets. There is also a list here of political candidates with Twitter accounts.

Google has also has added an Election news resource. In the meantime you can check the latest polls to see how pollsters like InsiderAdvantage, SurveyUSA, Zogby, Rasmussen and ARG predict the candidates are going to do today.
