Tonight we hope to learn who will be the next President of the United States, as well hundreds of U.S. Senate, U.S. House, state legislative, state ballot initiative, and local elections. (More)

Polls begin closing at 6pm ET in parts of Indiana and Kentucky, with polls in most Eastern Time Zone states closed by 8pm ET. Most Central Time Zone states’ polls close at 10pm ET, and all but Alaska’s will have closed by 11pm ET. What states and races will you be following most closely?

    VT called for Obama. KY, IN called for Romney. VA, other East Coast states still too close or too early to call.

    One thing to remember when watching the tallies – particularly the early results – is that the rural (and likely more Republican) districts are going to report in first.

    • NCrissieB

      Yes, it’s easier to call a precinct with just six voters….

  • NCrissieB

    SC called for Romney. Others still too close or too early to call.

  • NCrissieB

    GA called for Romney. Lots of states close at 8pm.

  • NCrissieB

    MA, CT, MD, ME, RI, DE, IL, D.C. called for Obama. OK, AL for Romney.

    Congratulations to Sen. Tammy Baldwin! First openly LGBT member of U.S. Senate! :grin:

    • addisnana

      Yes!

  • NCrissieB

    I’m now reading that calls for Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Baldwin were premature or reporter’s errors. Grrr….

  • NCrissieB

    WI, PA, MI for Obama. Romney’s paths to 270 getting very thin….

  • Jim W

    Congratulations to Sen. Joe Donnelly (IN) defeating Richard Mourdock! :grin:

    • addisnana

      Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock are probably wishing they had shut up about rape. I for one think it was super of them to share their ‘principles’ with the rest of us. Jerks!

  • NCrissieB

    Fox News has called WI-Sen for Tammy Baldwin. :grin:

    • addisnana

      Well if Fox says so too, it must be true. Go Tammy! :smile:

  • NCrissieB

    Congratulations to Sen. Claire McCaskill! :grin:
