    On Nov 1., Nikki Delamotte and Anne Nickoloff made a pitch to their editor:

    Front pages from local newspapers around the country led election day coverage on front pages with words including "wave," "decision" and "divided." But a good number used the front to simply remind people to vote, how to vote and where to find results.
