Our downtown location, the Windsor Star News Cafe, will be hosting live Election Night coverage tonight starting at 9:00PM. If politics is your game, come on by the News Cafe and grab a drink and sit back and enjoy hearing the election results pour in.

From Donald McArthur on the  Windsor Star:

The Windsor Star will broadcast live provincial election coverage from The Windsor Star News Cafe Thursday night. We will start streaming when the polls close about 9 p.m.

You can watch it on www.windsorstar.com or, better yet, watch the show live in the News Cafe at 300 Ouellette Avenue. The cafe is licensed and everyone is welcome.

I’ll be co-hosting the broadcast with opinion columnist Chris Vander Doelen. Web editor Dylan Kristy will run the results desk and liaise with reporters and photographers in the field, who will be fanned out across Windsor and Essex County as the results come in.
