When Evan Smith helped launch the nonprofit Texas Tribune in 2009, he set out to get people engaged in their government again, especially in places where newspaper coverage has dwindled. The Tribune introduced blogs, multimedia, troves of government data, and something old-fashioned for an online news startup: face-to-face conversations.
Come take in the Tribune's election coverage through multimedia and data visualizations at our national watch party on Election Night! Through data visualization tools and up-to-the-moment coverage from the reporting team, The Texas Tribune offers an unbeatable look at national and local election results as they happen.
Join us for a rollicking celebration with food, drinks and live music at the newly renovated Belmont in downtown Austin.
