BBC News online coverage of Election 2010
As the 2010 general election campaign officially gets under way, I thought it might be useful to give you a quick summary of how we'll be covering it on the BBC News website, and the key features you can expect; the BBC's coverage plans as a whole are outlined at the press office.
On the website, our aim is to bring you all the best of the BBC's election output so you can follow what promises to be a hard-fought, engaging and fast-moving campaign online and on your mobile.
Our focus will be on up-to-the-minute live reporting and video of all the key moments, as well as in-depth information, analysis and context to help make sense of it all. And our web designers and developers have helped us come up with a number of new ways to present the story as it unfolds.
A new release of our live page means you can keep in touch with key developments and events wherever you are - in running text updates, video and audio. The page will be updated throughout the campaign by BBC journalists across the UK, with video and audio streams of all the key live events
To explain the background to stories and issues, we've developed a set of interactive features, including a Where They Stand policy comparison, a tracker for all the latest opinion polls, as well as guides to voting, what happens at Westminster and what a hung Parliament is.
There will be analysis from BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson, blogging throughout the campaign, and our other political reporters across the UK. A Reality Check feature will test the campaign claims and promises as they are made. On Twitter, you can follow Rory Cellan-Jones as he reports on how digital technology is affecting the campaign, and the live campaign reporting of BBC News Channel Chief Political Correspondent Laura Kuenssberg.
Our teams across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are covering the campaign around the country and you can find latest campaign news for where you live on your local news index and constituency pages.
You can tell us what you think about what you've seen and heard in our Have Your Say debates, on Facebook and on Twitter. And if you feel like it, you will be able to tell the world - in video - what you think should be done by the next occupant of No 10 - in If I Were PM.
When the results come in overnight on 6 May and into the next day it'll all be at bbc.co.uk/election - a fast and comprehensive service of latest results on your PC, laptop or mobile, along with the BBC's special TV and radio programming.
So when you get a chance, have a look around; we hope you'll like what you find.
