Polls Closed

On most of the East Coast and Midwest. At the top of the hour, projections have Kerry up 77 to 66. South Carolina, Virginia, and North Carolina–all states where Bush is almost certain to win–are still not called.

Bush is leading among the votes counted in Ohio and Florida.

I don’t think it will be a long night. We should know something by 10:00 PM CST–11:00 in the east.
