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.
