Guide des élections américaines: liens utiles afin de suivre la soirée

Publication: 06/11/2012 12:38

À moins de quelques heures de la diffusion des premiers résultats des élections américaines, le Web regorge de ressources pour suivre la soirée électorale. On peut facilement s'y perdre, j'ai donc regroupé pour vous quelques-unes de mes adresses et liens chouchous, afin de vous aider à profiter au maximum de ce qui s'annonce être une course très serrée.

Sur le Huffington Post:

D'abord, en français sur le Huffington Post, je vous invite à consulter l'article "Tout ce qu'il faut savoir sur le déroulement de l'élection". Notre blogue en direct diffuse également tous les développements majeurs de l'élection à la seconde près.

Sur HuffPost Live, la télévision web de nos collègues américains, vous pouvez (sur mobile, tablette ou votre ordinateur) suivre cette journée historique en compagnie de journalistes, animateurs et analystes réputés, mais également avec des citoyens qui se joignent à la conversation grâce à Google Hangouts.

Le New York Times

Le New York Times a quant à lui décidé de retirer le mur payant de son site à partir de 18h00. Les lecteurs du célèbre journal auront un accès illimité à tous les articles du site (sur web et mobile) pendant 24 heures. La "Grey Lady" a également créé un incroyable graphique interactif identifiant toutes les routes à la Maison Blanche, selon les États que gagneront Barack Obama ou Mitt Romney. Je vous recommande fortement de garder ce lien sous la main durant la soirée.

La curation du Washington Post

Le Washington Post fait un excellent travail de curation avec The Grid, un grille où l'on peut voir en un coup d'oeil le meilleur contenu publié sur les réseaux sociaux.

Sur Tumblr: plusieurs blogues à surveiller!

Parmi mes favoris, on retrouve:

  • Le Tumblr officiel de la campagne américaine -- un incontournable
  • ShortFormBlog -- élection ou pas, ce site de nouvelles est probablement mon préféré de tous
  • Le Tumblr de Mother Jones -- pour la rigueur et la pertinence du propos


Et sur Twitter alors?

Plus de 10.3 millions de tweets ont été publiés lors du premier débat présidentiel le 3 octobre dernier, faisant de la soirée l'événement politique le plus tweeté dans l'histoire des États-Unis. La soirée électorale de ce soir viendra-t-elle battre ce record? On peut croire que oui. Pour s'y retrouver parmi tout ce bruit, mon collègue Craig Kanalley (@ckanal -- suivez-le si ce n'est pas déjà fait, il est excellent) a créé une liste de journalistes américains à suivre lors de la soirée.

Le responsable des médias sociaux de Reuters, Matthew Keys, a également créé une liste de 50 comptes essentiels afin de bien s'informer tout au long de la soirée.

Pour les mordus des médias sociaux et de journalisme:

Mark Galser, éditeur de PBS MediaShift animera un live-stream à partir de 15:15 EST afin d'analyser le rôle des médias sociaux sur la politique. Parmi ses invités on retrouvera des personnalités de Twitter, factcheck.org et le San Francisco Chronicle.

Au Québec
En français, il est également possible de suivre la présidentielle sur le Web avec la Chaire Raoul-Dandurand. Le mot-clic à suivre pour les tweets en français est #EtatsUnis2012


Des outils contre la fraude électorale

À l'ère des réseaux sociaux et des téléphones intelligents, plusieurs outils ont été mis en place afin que les citoyens puissent rapporter des irrégularités dans leur bureau de vote. Développé par NewsBeast Labs, le site havingtroublevoting.com est particulièrement bien fait. Chez Mother Jones, "MoJo's Guide to Voter Suppression and Poll Problems" comprend également une carte interactive des États-Unis afin d'identifier les problèmes à travers les bureaux de vote du pays.

Un très bon exemple de l'impact des nouvelles technologies sur cette journée de vote a d'ailleurs été démontré aujourd'hui lorsqu'un citoyen de la Pennsylvanie a publié une vidéo dans laquelle on voit la machine électronique transformer son vote pour Obama en un vote pour Mitt Romney. Rapidement diffusée sur Reddit, plusieurs ont cru que la vidéo était truquée, or MSNBC vient de confirmer qu'il y avait bel et bien un défaut avec la machine en question. Celle-ci vient d'être retirée du bureau de vote.

Le LOL: très important

Et parce qu'il n'y a rien comme l'humour pour conclure cette interminable campagne électorale -- qui je soupçonne a commencé lorsque les chandails bedaines étaient encore à la mode -- je vous rappelle que le Daily Show avec Jon Stewart ainsi que le Colbert Report seront tous les deux diffusés exceptionnellement en direct ce soir.

Sur quels sites, plateformes allez-vous suivre l'élection américaine? Avez-vous des comptes Twitter à nous recommander? Faites-nous-en part dans la section commentaires ci-bas.
