I have a dentist appt on Tues., a nap planned and NOTHING planned for Wednesday. (I early voted so don't have to worry about that.) I say they can't call it until Wednesday morning like 5:00A. I'm in the Eastern Time Zone. I have a problem with reading the Fox News election results at the bottom of the screen every time there is an election/primary so I might have to watch CNN who has readable bottom screen results.

Fox News if you are reading this you need to make those results bigger and don't put white font on red background.

Central time here, and I'll stay up for as long as I can stay awake, until 3 or 4 a.m. if it goes that long. But I don't think it will. I think they'll call it before midnight EST.

I'll probably stay up well into the morning hours if that's what it takes. I'm very interested in the outcome.

(say what time zone you are in)
Depends on how long it takes to call Ohio and what news is calling it . As we saw in Florida many years ago an early call can be wrong

I have small children to take to school in the morning. They are more important to me than staying up to watch something that I have no control over. Life on Wednesday will be no different for me than life on Tuesday.

I will watch CNN, when I wake up, if the results are not out before I go to sleep.
