At 8:25PM CDT, Barack Obama is our projected winner in the US Presidential race. Barring major upsets in the western states, Obama will win by a large margin of electoral votes. Polls will close last in Hawaii and Alaska at 9pm and 10pm CDT.

Alabama's 9 electoral votes will be going to John McCain.

In other elections:

Jeff Sessions has been re-elected to the US Senate.

Lucy Baxley appears to have won the PSC office, as well.

Report Vote Irregularities

Your vote is the most important tool you have to exercise your freedom. It should be cherished and protected. Voter intimidation, fraud and other improprieties that can alter the true vote count should be reported and eliminated immediately.

If you suspect or witness improper procedures at the polls, call the Alabama voter help-line at 1-800-274-VOTE (8683) to report the problem. There are several ways to report the suspected fraud. The Alabama Secretary of State website lists multiple options.

There is also a national hotline, 1-866-OUR-VOTE, or 1-866-687-8683. To view reports of voting irregularities in realtime, visit the Our Vote website.

Good Day to Vote

While the results of today's elections will be up in the air until polls close, clouds won't be for long. The forecast calls for clear skies and temperatures in the mid-70s. There's no excuse to avoid the polls, at least where the weather is concerned. Polls are open from 7am until 7pm.
