Don't sit around biting your nails by yourself as you wait to hear who the next leader of the free world will be. Join The Root, TWIB and some very special guests on Tuesday from 7:30 p.m. until around midnight for our livestream and chat and Twitter session.

This Week in Blackness host Elon James White, along with his co-hosts L. Joy Williams and Aaron Rand Freeman, will be joined over the course of the night by The Root's managing editor, Sheryl Huggins Salomon, Dr. Anthea Butler, Imani Gandy and The Root Contributing Editor David Swerdlick. In addition, two contributors to The Root will be calling in from the field: Afi-Odelia E. Scruggs, from the battleground of Ohio, and Lynette Holloway from Obama for America headquarters in Chicago. They will make predictions, discuss returns as they come in and keep an eye on any shady stories from the polls.

Also expect some exclusive Election Day footage from The Root's correspondents.

So sit back, relax, chat, Tweet (at #TWIB2012 and #TheRootVote) and let us keep you company on this election night.
