A definitive guide to the eight swing states that will decide the election

The campaign is nearing an end. The final polls are being conducted. Soon enough, we’ll all be sitting and watching actual votes being counted.

For election junkies like myself, we always have a lot of data in our minds. We know a state’s voting history and what to expect from it.

What I’ve done here is try and put you inside the head of someone like me. I’ve laid out, as clearly as possible, what I believe are the key states in the presidential race on election night, along with key details on each state including closing times (note that no state will be called until the last closing time for a given state), polling average, voting history and the key swing counties in each state.
