*** EXCLUSIVE INVITATION FOR PACE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ***

SPEND ELECTION NIGHT WITH ABC NEWS IN TIMES SQUARE!

This Tuesday, November 8, you have an opportunity to witness history in the making. ABC News has invited Pace University students to join them in their Times Square Election Headquarters as they cover voting results from this year’s historic election.

ABC will be broadcasting all night and students are invited to participate from 6:00 p.m.–11:00 p.m. The network will be talking with those in their Times Square crowdand students may have the chance to appear on camera and/or be interviewed. The network promises it will be a fun and exciting evening.

While all eyes in the nation will be on the voting results, few will have the opportunity to be embedded with a national news network and potentially see results coming in before the public sees them.

The current and two former anchors of ABC's flagship World News Tonight broadcast will be on the set election nightand George Stephanopoulos will lead the coverage. Stephanopoulos is ABC's top man in politics, and it will be his first election night as the chief anchor.

Election night is all hands on deck at ABC and Charles Gibson is coming out of retirement to be on the set. Diane Sawyer, who anchored ABC's coverage four years ago, will also participate, along with current World News Tonight anchor David Muir. ABC's coverage will originate from Times Square, and Michael Strahan of Good Morning America will be outside to get public reaction.

ABC is stationing Robin Roberts at Hillary Clinton's headquarters, and Amy Robach at Donald Trump's. ABC News also has the closely watched prognosticator, Nate Silver of the FiveThirtyEight website, giving state-by-state analysis.

ABC will also air a special edition of Nightline from 2:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. ET.
