America's Election Headquarters is a news program focusing on news concerning national elections and current affairs broadcast on the Fox News Channel that formerly appeared weekdays 5pm Eastern Time and various times on Saturdays and Sundays during election years.

2008 elections[edit]

America's Election Headquarters debuted during the 2008 United States presidential election season. The show was originally hosted by Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer in its first run. On June 10, 2008, the show was replaced by a new series called Just In, starring conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham. Ingraham's show was short-lived (whether or not this was by design has not been determined), and on July 7 America's Election Headquarters returned, hosted by E.D. Hill, who formerly hosted America's Pulse on FNC.

Since Hill's hosting stint, various Fox News personalities have served as hosts, including Hemmer and Kelly.

The weekday edition replaced The Big Story.

The title of the show is based on Fox News's slogan of "America's Election HQ", heavily used during the 2008 election season.

America's Election Headquarters was replaced after the Presidential Election on 5 November 2008 with America's News Headquarters. The programme remains to similar to America's Election HQ and it is on at the same times.

Later elections[edit]

In the 2010 midterms and 2012 elections the name "America's Election Headquarters" has continued to be used for election analysis and results programmings.

2016 elections[edit]

FOX News brought back the America's Election Headquarters brand for the 2016 elections. For the Iowa Caucasus, the network built a set at the Embassy Suites, in Des Moines, Iowa, that was used across the network. Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier were primary anchors in Iowa. Starting on March 2016, America's Election Headquarters again replaced America's News Headquarters as Fox News' main weekend programming.

After the release of Gretchen Carlson, FOX News brought the branding to the 2-3 PM (eastern time) hour with host Shannon Bream.
