Empire State will be lit to show election winner
As states are called, the spire atop the ESB will add blocks of red or blue to either candidate's column until a winner is declared. The color scheme will change from "patriotic red, white and blue vertical stripes" to a uniform red or blue depending on who won.
So, if you live in New York and for some reason you have no other way of receiving election results, you can always look up.
Critical thinking challenge: 538 votes will be cast. It makes more than half to win. How many votes does it take to win?
