Poll Closing Times

To help you plan an evening of clutching the edge of your seat and watching with rapt attention as Wolf Blitzer drones on your screen, here are the times that the last polls close in each state. All times Eastern.

If you are a voter, don't use this as a guide!  In many states, some polls close earlier than others.  Instead, go here to find out where and when you can cast your ballot.

7pm: GA, IN, KY, SC, VA, VT
: OH, WV
: AL, CT, DC, DE, FL, IL, MA, MD, ME, MO, MS, NH, NJ, OK, PA, TN

>>(Earliest time at which the race could be called)

8:30pm: AR, NC
: AZ, CO, KS, LA, MI, MN, NE, NM, NY, RI, SD, TX, WI, WY
: IA, MT, NV, UT
: CA, HI, ID, ND, OR, WA
: AK

My guess? The networks call the election at around 9:30 or 10:00pm.  But if you're a true political junkie, you'll be up late to see who wins the close Senate race in Alaska...
