Trump and Clinton

UPDATE (7:30 p.m.): West Virginia has been called for Donald Trump. Florida’s polls have closed, and the numbers are close between Trump and Clinton. Marco Rubio is currently ahead to retain his Senate seat.

As for Gary Johnson, he’s currently getting less than five percent of the popular vote in every state currently releasing numbers, except for New Hampshire, where he’s got 6.6 percent.

UPDATE (7 p.m.): As more polls on the east begin to close, we have our first state projections. Several outlets are calling Kentucky and Indiana for Donald Trump and Vermont for Hillary Clinton. It’s too early to call other races. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has been projected as keeping his seat.

Earlier: Maybe you don’t want to watch talking heads and fancy maps over at your cable news networks. Maybe you don’t want to keep refreshing some web page from a newspaper site. Maybe you’re out enjoying yourself at a bar or binge-watching Netflix instead of paying excessive attention to election results.

If you just want to check in periodically to see where various races stand, this is the blog post for you. I’ll be updating this post periodically with results that we feel our relevant to Reason readers: the presidential election, obviously, control of Congress, important ballot initiatives, and whatever else may come up this evening. I’ll toss the latest news, time-stamped, at the top of the post once reportable information comes in.

This won’t be a blog post for analysis. But rest assured, Reason writers will be picking over the results in other pieces to analyze what it all means for liberty and what we can expect moving forward.
