Polls closed in Tennessee at 8:00 p.m. Eastern (7:00 Central), but of course, if someone was in line at that time, then they’ll get to vote, regardless of how long it takes.
The local news stories here are that there are still voters waiting to cast ballots in Nashville and in Memphis. In what is possibly trending closer than expected, this could be very important (and a final result not known for some time). Waiting to vote more than three hours after the polls “closed” is just strange to me. Something smells funny.
More to come…
As a side note, there is apparently some significant malfunction with the tabulation of the vote in Knox County (Knoxville), where approximately 5000 votes can’t be tallied until the morning. A tech guy from the company making the eSlate voting machine is going to fly into Knoxville in the morning to fix it.
