The evening of Canada's federal election is finally upon us. Polls are closing, results are rolling in and the waiting game begins. If you're out, don't have a TV or simply want options for how to watch Canada's 2019 federal election results live, we've got you covered.

As one of the most important events in the country, there's no shortage of live coverage this evening. Every major news outlet is using different platforms to keep Canadians informed, from YouTube live streams to live tweets to radio discussion panels.

In fact, if you're in Canada, it's practically impossible not to keep track of the election results no matter what you're doing. Hearing or talking about the election is unavoidable unless you're at home and completely unplugged. However, for Canadians living abroad, or for anyone outside of Canada who cares about our election, it's not as easy to stay in the loop. 

First and foremost, you can watch Narcity Canada's Facebook live stream for real-time numbers and hilarious commentary.

Then, there's CBC. CBC's election night special runs all evening and you can watch it live from their website, along with the latest numbers, news and updates. You can also watch it live on YouTube, wherever you're located.

You can also watch the election live on Global News. You can even tune into Maclean's super visually satisfying approach to election coverage, which they've called "Canada's most relaxing results". It's literally people colouring and tracing a map of Canada as the results come in and it's so soothing to watch.

If you just want the cold hard data, CTV News has made an interactive map to show you who is in the lead in every single riding. CTV is also running a YouTube stream with live reports from over 60 journalists across the country, including Iqaluit! 

So, you've got options. If straight election news isn't your thing, the internet has come through with some excellent memes and tweets related to voting day and to our federal candidates. So sit back, relax and watch the news unfold no matter where you are.

There are stories everywhere. If you spot a newsworthy event in your city, send us a message, photo, or video @NarcityCanada on Twitter and Instagram.
