When Will Presidential Election 2012 Results Be Announced?

Michigan's voting goes until 8 p.m., but some polls elsewhere close earlier.

Michigan voters have until 8 p.m. Eastern to cast their Election 2012 ballots, but voting in other key swing states ends as much as an hour earlier, and exit polling could provide an early clue whether President Obama or Mitt Romney is closer to the White House.

The earliest key state to watch is Virginia, where polls close at 7 p.m. Eastern.

Voting ends 30 minutes later in the swing states of Ohio and North Carolina. As Michigan's polls close, the swing states of Florida, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire close their polls, too.

Nevada and Iowa, two other swing states that could prove pivotal in this year's presidential election, close voting at 10 p.m. Eastern.

Tea Baggers: your hate proved all for naught. You questioned our president's birth place; you questioned our patriotism; you questioned every crazy thing under the sun- but you never questioned our resolve. And it is strong. The popular vote is still fluctuating but the electoral college has been wrapped up. Now you understand how 2000 felt. Come out from the darkness and join us for 4 MORE YEARS.

Maybe they would if you didn't call them names like "Tea Baggers"?

All that whining in just one sentence. Pitiful, but steeped in the Romneyesque mode of lying and/or relying upon ignorance and prejudice.

Laura, given that the post just before Daniel's referred to the President as the devil, tea bagger would appear to be a term of endearment.

Wahh wahh class warfare wahh wahh socialist. You forgot secret Muslim. Man up and get over it or move to Somalia, the teabagger paradise.

FHVoice, you may be right, but one expects better of the victorious. I was fairly well ignoring the first post as unmedicated raving.
