Poll Closing Times

Swing State Project has a cool graphic depicting the poll closing times for each state as well as a handy chart that shows what time the voting ends in key races being decided today. Many states exist in multiple time zones and so have different poll closing times. Below you'll find simply a list of the times -- all Eastern -- when each state will begin to actually report presidential results, i.e. when ALL voting in each state is technically set to conclude (obviously does not factor in extended times to accommodate long lines/voting irregularities, etc.):
Update [2008-11-4 13:54:2 by Todd Beeton]:Just wanted to reiterate that this list contains the times when the last poll in each state will close and hence, when we can expect to begin to see results. Many states are in two timezones, so check your specific area for when your actual local polls close. The Swing State Project map is a good resource for this.
