THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL SCHEDULE. DO NOT RELY ON THIS PAGE TO DETERMINE WHEN TO VOTE.

The media will usually wait until all the polls in a state close to report results for contests affecting all residents of the state.

States in multiple time zones may close all their polls simultaneously, or they may close at the same local time. For example, all polls in Tennessee close at the same time which is 8PM Eastern, 7PM Central. On the other hand, in neighboring Kentucky the polls close at 6PM local time, which means polls in the Central Time Zone are open an hour later than those in the Eastern Time Zone. Note that Election Day court rulings and/or local rules may alter these schedules. This excellent graphic, courtesy of Daily Kos* and The Green Papers, shows the closing time (Eastern Standard Time) across the U.S.

The table below provides the LATEST scheduled closing time for the polls in each state (adjusted to Eastern Standard Time). This time is the earliest that you can expect to see results for the presidential and Senate elections in each state. Your polling place may close earlier, particularly if you are in a state with multiple time zones. DO NOT RELY ON THIS PAGE TO DETERMINE WHEN TO VOTE.
