Our internet stream will include live video reports from campaign headquarters in Seattle, Portland, and Denver, where voters in Washington, Oregon, and Colorado will be voting on statewide marijuana legalization. We’ll also get reports from Little Rock and Boston, where voters in Arkansas and Massachusetts are deciding whether to enact medical marijuana laws. Plus we’ll have reports from Helena, Montana, on the referendum to reject new medical marijuana restrictions, and from Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, and Ypsilanti, Michigan, where voters are deciding municipal initiatives to decriminalize marijuana or make it the lowest police law enforcement priority.
In 2010, our live coverage from Oaksterdam for the Prop 19 legalization vote brought in a total of 50,000 live views and a peak of 5,000 as polls closed in California. This year, with four time zones of poll closures and six statewide marijuana votes, viewership will skyrocket.
