New features to help you stay connected.

Here's how The Tyee will be bringing you the election results today.

On The Hook: Our reporters will be filing items during the day. Once the results are known, The Hook will publish reports from across the province, including: Liberal, NDP and Green headquarters in Metro Vancouver, Carole James and Jane Sterk in Victoria, as well as local riding reports from Delta-South, Boundary-Similkameen, Dawson Creek and Kelowna.

On Twitter: We'll be tweeting the evening's results up to the minute, as well as Hook headlines.

The Tyee and The Hook have their own Twitter accounts that are updated regularly with tweets of the most recent stories hot off the press. Feel free to follow these tweets yourself by logging in at twitter.com and finding The Tyee's feed -- "TheTyee" -- and The Hook's feed -- "TheHookBlog."

(Note that you need your own Twitter account to follow our Twitter feeds. But don't worry. It's easy to sign up. Just go here.)

For this election, we wanted to do something new by providing our Twitter followers with live B.C. election results and observations as they appear. Results will be tweeted from 7 p.m. onwards, so be sure to tune in. To find us on Election Day please check out our twitter feeds for The Tyee and The Hook, or search the twitter tag "#BCelection," which we will append to all of our outgoing Election Day tweets.

Streamed video: Find it on The Hook home page. We've partnered with 24 Hours Vancouver to bring you their video feeds from NDP and Liberal camps in Vancouver. Look for Tyee reporters to share their televised insights.

Tyee features: Find our most recent 20 features on the election here, and a bigger list of stories, organized by topic, here. After the results are known, visit The Tyee's home page and our political news blog The Hook for analysis from Will McMartin, Rafe Mair and other seasoned observers.  [Tyee]
