What Time Will 2012 Election Results Be Announced in Wisconsin?

Poll here close at 8 p.m., but swing states end voting as early as 6 p.m. local time.

Wisconsin voters have until 8 p.m. to cast their Election 2012 ballots, but voting in other key swing states ends as much as three hours before then, and exit polling could provide an early indication of whether President Obama or Mitt Romney wins the White House.

The earliest key state to watch for is Virginia, where polls close at 6 p.m. Wisconsin time. 

Voting ends 30 minutes later in swing states Ohio and North Carolina. At 7 p.m. swing states Florida, Pennslvania and New Hampshire close their polls.

The final two swing states, Nevada and Iowa, close at 9 p.m. CST.

I will never trust what Randy says again. There are too many of him to keep up with.
Blair Nielsen November 06, 2012 at 08:36 PM
I thought the bigger question was what time will the sun come up Tomarow

Unfreaking real, no pound signs or copy pastia Misty, I watch MSDNC enough and it is for education besides entertainment. I have to see what the next round of lying liberal talking points will be. And my conclusion is they can't even think of these talking points looking at who they hire. It's more from the blogs and since they have about 5 viewers I don't blame them for trying to plug in as many fancy sounding words with no substance.

I wonder why people feel the need to "win" a discussion.

I read elsewhere that there were about 30 people ahead of him. Wisconsin Defender @wi_defender 29s Nothing could be more perfectly symbolic of the GOP ticket than Paul Ryan cutting in front of a line of work-a-day people to cast his vote.

1949 was a good year for Randys.

Adsum esse @Radclyffe1 2m Ryan cuts into line to vote. Feeling a sense of entitlement, Paul? #GOTV

Because they so full of what is right, they cant see what is good.

God help those children. I can only assume they were not intelligent enough to comprehend why they should vote Republican. Either that, or just said it to 'agee politely'...

This was my first time tracking this blog. I had hoped to find election comments that had substance.
Randy1949 November 07, 2012 at 01:25 AM
My condolences. This is the Patch. Signed, the real Randy

I'm calling it for Obama. Congratulations, President Obama! Congratulations, USA!

Taoist go back to red china. You got some bad drugs. Must of got them on one of the corners on the east side of milwaukee.
Taoist Crocodile November 07, 2012 at 02:24 AM
C'mon Jim, everyone knows that the best drugs are in Brookfield. You should work on that attitude of yours, though - otherwise it's going to be a long 4 years for you...
Taoist Crocodile November 07, 2012 at 02:40 AM
NBC called Wisconsin for Obama!
Randy1949 November 07, 2012 at 02:42 AM
Prematurely, IMO, but is it true they ran out of ballots in Racine?
Sunrocket November 07, 2012 at 02:47 AM
The real randy does not have a pic on his profile. At least he never used to.
Taoist Crocodile November 07, 2012 at 02:49 AM
Oh, it's definitely premature. NY Times isn't touching it.
Randy1949 November 07, 2012 at 02:50 AM
@sunrocket -- I put the picture there after the last round of imposterism. Just check the profile message and the number of posts. Also the fact I'm from Brookfield.
Taoist Crocodile November 07, 2012 at 02:56 AM
Never mind - Fox News called it too. Might as well be Jesus calling it, as far as the Patch wingnut crew is concerned.
Isold November 07, 2012 at 04:31 AM
GOD BLESS AMERICA! WE, YOUR CANADIAN COUSINS ARE VERY PROUD of you! US is fighting for its middle class! Chose a President that is working for you! Say no to the Party of NO NO and lobbyist!

Bob McBride November 07, 2012 at 04:40 AM
Everyone deserves a free public health care and a President that do not lie! ************** Maybe next time then. We don't have "a free public health care". As for the second part, that's debatable. Go feed your kitties, Bubbles.
Brittany November 07, 2012 at 06:35 AM
There are more than white males in this nation and you can't intimidate people. Don't you understand, people will always fight for their rights! As goes the lesson! Obama/Biden/Baldwin 2012!
