found this on the guardian’s live blog of the referendum:
Are you reading this from America? *waves*
If so, welcome. And here’s a guide written especially for you from the Guardian’s New York office on the best ways to follow the referendum - voting and counting. Obviously its first recommendation is this liveblog. But have a read of it anyway, then come straight back.
The Guardian’s live blog is here: theguardian.com
The result is not expected to be firm until around sunrise in Scotland (after midnight in the USA), but there should be some interesting results trickling out hours earlier, as various districts report in (more than 5,500 polling stations in 32 districts in Scotland will be open from 7am until 10pm local time - 2am-5pm ET).
In the US, C-SPAN will be simulcasting BBC coverage of the referendum, with Huw Edwards hosting, beginning at 5.35pm ET. Recommended.
