Viewers are ready for a rich meal of election items and with CNN’s technology on air and online, paired with the Best Political Team, we will serve an unparalleled election night experience.” "The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer" will act as the starting point for the Election Night programming at 5:00 PM ET.
