Today BET Networks announced its coverage for Election night and continues to encourage its audience to make a difference in this election and "Vote Like Your Life Depends On It."

The BET News election special will broadcast from NYC with live remotes in Chicago, Boston and key battleground states. The coverage will also look back on the more memorable moments of the first African-American presidency while reporting in real time on unfolding election result. It will also include reports and updates from attorneys and activists monitoring the "voter suppression" issue which has particular significance to African-American voters.
