Real Time Election Results
I'll be bumping this to the top periodically all night. It's a widget and will update automatically. Click on the "President" link for live vote tallies.
Update: 11:10 pm: McCain called Obama and conceded. He will speak tonight, Sarah Palin will not.
Update: 11:00 pm: Obama wins the Presidency.
Update: 10:50 pm: Obama wins Virginia. [More...]
Update: 10:05 pm: Here's why it's over. CNN has Obama at 206 without Colorado and California. Together they are 64 votes. The Rocky Mountain News called Colorado for Obama, it's not even close. McCain can't win California. That puts Obama at 270. I think we can safely call this race for Obama.
Update: 10:00 pm: Obama wins Iowa, Colorado and New Mexico. He's got 206 electoral votes, 64 to go. McCain gets Arkansas, Kansas and Utah, but he is toast. Montana and Nevada are too early to call.
Update 9:30pm: Obama wins Ohio.
Update 9:00 pm: Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Wisconsin, Rhode Island go for Obama. McCain got Georgia, Alabama, Wyoming and North Dakota.
Update 8:30pm: Obama takes Pennsylvania and New Hampshire. I'd say it's over. The only question will be how much of a blowout.
Update 8:11 pm: Indiana looks bad for McCain. He's underperforming Bush's 2004 numbers in the red counties. CBS has called NH for Obama. Early Ohio numbers are looking good for Obama.
Update 8:00 pm: 15 states just closed. 8 states to Obama. Mass., Illiniois, CT, NJ, Delaware, Maryland, Maine and the District of Columbia. McCain gets Oklahoma and Tennessee. FL, PA and Missouri are too close to call. McCain is far behind Bush in the red counties in the middle. Looks to me like Obama will take Florida easily.
Update 7:50 pm: CBS calls South Carolina and W. Va. for McCain. CBS election results are here. CNN also calls S.C. for McCain. Obama is ahead in NC and in Miami-Dade County in Florida. See the county map.
Virginia results are here. Only two southern rural counties are in which McCain is winning. Indiana results are here. Obama could take it. He's running strong in the red counties, the blue ones aren't in yet.
Update 7:20 pm: Grant Park in Chicago is filling up for the Obama event later tonight. A million people are expected. CNN is doing hologramming, bringing their reporters into the CNN Election Center. Jessica Yellin is there now, 35 cameras are shooting her body at different angles in Chicago and beaming her into the set in New York. It's very strange but very cool.
Update 7:03 pm: CNN calls Vermont for Obama, Kentucky for McCain.
Update 6:51 pm: GA, IN, KY, SC, VT and VA will close in at 7pm ET. NC closes at 7:30 pm.
