We also were lucky enough to have Flickr group member MK Czerwiec document the election day activities in the 6th District. She visited the sites of Roskam and Morganthaler’s election night parties- both locations are heavy with the weight of anticipation (though in the end Roskam’s turned out to be a victory party). Enjoy this slideshow and catch up on our coverage of the race here.
