It's hard to believe, but November 4 is now less than two weeks away. That night, NPR HQ will be sheer chaos -- wonderful, wonkish chaos -- as we reach the culmination of yet another four-year election cycle. It's the perfect excuse for a blogger meetup.
On election night, NPR will convert its conference facility into a filing center for broadcasters from around the world, and we're hoping to include around two dozen bloggers in the mix. We'd like to get bloggers from across the political spectrum to join us for the entire night (read: 6pm to as late as 4am). We'll provide them with a workspace, wifi access, live news feeds and plenty of food and caffeine to keep them up all night. We'll even give tours of the election studio throughout the evening.
Space is extremely limited, so we're only able to accommodate bloggers in the DC area or who are able to get to DC on their own dime. If you're interested in applying for the event, please fill out the election night blogger meetup form no later that 5pm ET this Friday, October 22, and we'll get back to you before the end of next week.
