Our polls are mostly closed. The weather was nice and sunny. It only started raining just now which is great, it will keep tempers if not cool at least indoors. I've no idea of the results yet. Maybe around midnight, about 5 hours from now.

Look at the bright side. It's good practice to help you prepare for how you will likely feel come November. :<)
