It’s election day, and you know what that means — tons of coverage from every major news network. And, yes, that includes CBS, which will have a three-hour CBS News midterm election special and plenty of additional coverage on the free CBS News streaming service.

On TV, CBS News’ coverage will start at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and be led by “CBS This Morning” anchors Norah O’Donnell, Gayle King, John Dickerson and Bianna Golodryga, along with “CBS Evening News” anchor Jeff Glor.

That broadcast you can find on television, as well as streaming through the CBS All Access service. You don’t need a cable login for that, but it does cost $5.99 a month for the subscription. However, if you’ve never used All Access before you can get a free seven-day trial here.

Meanwhile, the free 24-hour ad-supported CBS News streaming network, which you can check out on YouTube here or in the embed up top, or through the CBS app, will have its own separate wall-to-wall coverage of the midterms. That stream won’t go offline at all, so you can watch it until you fall asleep if you want to. That stream will be led by CBS News correspondent Elaine Quijano.

At 11:35 p.m. ET, after local news, you can catch a special live episode of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” in which he’ll go over the election results. If you’re on the West Coast, however, you’ll have to watch a delayed version at the usual time.

If you find yourself in the mood for other styles of TV news coverage of the midterms tonight, you can also stream pretty much any of the other networks that are devoting wall-to-wall coverage to the midterms.
