This is it, folks. Election night in America is finally here. And the world is watching.

If you don’t have access to television or you’re held up somewhere this evening, you can watch the election results live tonight on CMP, either on your laptop or on your smartphone.

Adjusted to Eastern Time (ET), here are the latest scheduled closing times for the polls in each state. This is likely to be the earliest time that results will be reported, and a winner possibly projected, for each state.

I voted this morning here in NYS at 7:45AM EST without worry or running into any problems. Some were not so lucky — a Pennsylvania voting machine was taken out of service after it was discovered that it turned votes for President Obama into votes for Mittens. Fortunately, a vigilant voter caught it, reported it, and uploaded the video to YouTube.

In other voter suppression news, Judge Gregory Frost rejected the lawsuit brought yesterday afternoon challenging the untested experimental software on Ohio’s voting machines.

You can view ThinkProgress.org’s Election Day Live Blog for all the latest updates re: voter irregularities around the country.

Many voters turned out today at the polls, stood up for and defended democracy against widespread GOP voter suppression efforts. Our fight to defend democracy must and will continue long past Election Day is over. We must come together to defeat The New Jim Crow. We must come together to undo the damage to democracy caused by GOP voter suppression efforts and Citizens United.

There’s a lot of work to be done in the long road ahead of us. For now, it is abundantly clear that the electoral math continues to favor President Obama. And now we wait for the results. Be sure to check out ThinkProgress.org’s Election Night Live Blog.

Concession speech.  Two bits he just tweaked his victory speech.  And notice how distant he is from Ann?   Yikes.

 @KayWhitlock He was buying time to write his concession speech.  In the end, it was a gracious speech.  Thank god --- Now for the Obamas!

 @KayWhitlock Yep -- he's got no path to victory even with Ohio -- he's a petty little man.  He lost. It's over.

 @Seeta Yep - and Iowa is my partner's home state!  Just heard that Florida says 18K absentee ballots from Miami-Dade won't be counted until tomorrow.  But also hearing that Jeb Bush told rethugs they won't win FL.
