What we are working on: April 24

Here’s a look at our news budget at this hour for tomorrow’s paper.

Unlike most days, when our budget is in flux until evening, the newspaper for the day after a primary or an election goes through through weeks of planning. And by weeks, we mean WEEKS — sometimes six or eight.

What do you think about how we’ve planning to present all of the information about the primary? Do you think we do too much coverage of primaries/elections, just enough or not enough? Let us know by commenting here.
