Skip to comments.Following the Election Returns [Hour by Hour Guide]

This year the networks say they are guarding their exit poll results as if they were crown jewels. The results will be delivered to a "quarantine room," access to which will be granted to only two staffers from each network...
Given that the longer election night might not suit everyone's bedtime, I've prepared an hour-by-hour guide to tonight's results...
All times are Eastern. In a bow to tradition, we've listed states that went for George W. Bush two years ago in red and those that went for John Kerry in blue. The letters after state names indicate governor and senate races, with the incumbent party in the appropriate color (independents in black).
Polls close in these two states at 6 p.m. local time, which means the eastern portions will end voting at 6 EST. The key races in both states will be a bevy of close House races featuring GOP incumbents.
In Indiana, three GOP House incumbents have been trailing their Democratic challengers in October polls, albeit with survey samples so small the margin of error is large. Watch Rep. Mike Sodrel in the Ninth District. If he wins, it will mean it's unlikely Republicans will face a huge Democratic wave and lose 30 seats or more. If Rep. Chris Chocola in the Second District should survive, the GOP may wind up losing 20 seats or fewer. If Rep. John Hostettler also comes home to victory in the Eighth District, there is a good chance the GOP will retain its House majority. Indiana's Senate race isn't competitive; Republican Dick Lugar will easily win a sixth term.
Kentucky has two barn burners. Republican Rep. Anne Northup has held Louisville's Third District for five terms...

I just heard the voting machines in PA have started walking around and eating people!
I saw that here in MN but it was only this long hair maggot infest dope smoking FN type wearing an Impeach Bush button so apparently they are programed to only eat Rabid Moveon.org Leftists. Freepers should be safe. The Election Judge just game me a wink and a nod and said "nobody saw nothin' "
BTW, Karl says HI, GW says call him. Laura wants to know when you and Heather Locklear are coming by for dinner again.
Does anyone have a link or email that I can send to my fence sitting friends? Something of a humerous nature that will show the less imformed in a concise manner why they should vote Republican. I see some hilarious stuff on here. thanks
The machines are eating people? We can only know this if Dems lose, because if they win the machines must be benign. (sarcasm)
I just heard some guy from Vermont call into Glenn Beck..and said that he voted for "the socialist"...
When Glenn asked him why the heck he did THAT...he said "Because with the socialist I KNOW what I am getting, with a dem or GOP candidate I can't believe a word they say"...
Glenn said that perhaps this guy has hit on what this election is about..not the Iraq war...but people not believing the ones in office.
"Seems like a good turnout in Virginia."
Good turnout in my ward, but it's not the kind of ward where you want a good turnout. Webb central.
You've had a long time to get over it, but apparently have not yet succeeded. Perhaps if you'd put more effort into getting conservatives elected, you wouldn't be wasting so much negative energy on old news now.
Dude, I SO hope you got it right.
Connecticut is an exception. Try that in the wrong place with the right people and you split the dem vote -- GOP wins!

Ping for later.
Where's your voting station?
I say Ohio is a loss (I live hear and I don't think he's going back although I voted for him) and PA is a win (I think Rick's secret weapon is the Amish vote) otherwise I agree.
Good morning folks. Got to the polls 35 minutes after they opened. I was number 73 which means a good turnout here even though it is raining.
We had touchscreen voting machines, they growled some but I wasn't bitten a single time!
It was a lot of fun voting straight Republican.
If I lived in CT, I'd vote for Lieberman. So I guess that makes me a RINO, too.
Hard to listen and even harder to watch all the negative and biased news!!
If the Dims win, so do all of our nation's ENEMIES, foreign and domestic. The Commie and the Socialist Parties of the US will be dancing in the streets along with Al Qaeda and terrorists everywhere!
A GIANT STEP BACKWARDS!!
