Poll closing times are listed here:

https://ballotpedia.org/State_Poll_Opening_and_Closing_Times_(2020)
http://www.thegreenpapers.com/G16/closing.phtml?format=gc

First polls close in parts of IN and KY at 6pm Eastern, and we may start getting some results from those states shortly thereafter, but the networks won't call either state or post the topline exit poll #s until 7pm Eastern, when the rest of the polls close in those two states.

In addition to discussing election night results, this thread will also be used for discussing the exit polls, including exit poll leaks.  Because of the post-2004 exit polling reforms, the media themselves don't have access to any exit poll #s until 5pm Eastern.  Any supposed exit poll leaks you read before 5pm are certainly fake.  After 5pm, stuff will leak.  And we'll start getting AP stories about what the exit polls say about who voted.

For when all results come in:

I wonder if it would be a good idea to have separate megathreads for each of the major swing states?

We're going to get hit with a lot of content at once and this thread will become a tangled mess of different conversations -- about PA, NC, FL, AZ, TX, etc.

Prediction: this thread probably hits 300 pages and the site will crash multiple times.

Because it probably crashes multiple times, we might have fewer pages than expected Tongue

Hopefully this forum will stay calm and not freak out or overreact to anecdotal reports tomorrow.

Any result maps online yet (NYT, AP, CNN, etc.)? Only seeing Bloomberg.

The AP had a great interactive map for PRES/SEN/H/GOV in 2016, do they have another one up this year?
