Tuesday's historical presidential election is sure to be one of the most closely watched in recent history. But if you don't have cable television, don't worry. There are plenty of other ways to keep track of who's winning and losing as early results come in.


TV goes online for election coverage

All of the major networks will provide election coverage for free online, including CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.


Also, Sling TV offers a free 7-day trial that will give you access to several news channels like CNN online.

Social media has you covered, too
