    Anyone out there from Massachusetts? If so what are you hearing about the election today.....What are the exit polls saying for Scott Brown?

    Luckyman the local media has said they will be on with election coverage all day. From what I can see at 2:30 PM they aren't saying very much.

    Of course the fact that it is snowing and has been all day isn't helping voter turn out. The only way that you will get results is watch the news stations even National News should have coverage this election is that controversial.

    BTW at this point voter turn out is quite low no percentages given but low is being said.

    Wasn't there some law passed a few years ago that said the media can't report exit polls or vote tallies until the polls close?

    Bad weather is usually helpful to the Consevative/Republican party. Seems to keep the riff-raff indoors and away from the polls.

    Guess Acorn will file a lawsuit against the Weather Channel on this one.

    I don't know about legislation, but I do know there are no exit polls for this election.

    We're crossing our fingers!

    LA in MA

    I'm really hopeing that the folks in MA will show the people in NV how it should be done and then perhaps we can get old Harry out of the senate in 2010.

    Good luck guys!

    Our local news in Fort Wayne (CBS), just said voter turnout has been heavy, and CBS affiliates puts Brown slightly ahead. Wayne

    I`m originally from Taxachusetts, but have been in Fl. for many years.

    I`m still curious about this election though

    I believe the polls close at 9P.M.

    Regards, Pete

    I heard that the Republican candidate is losing due to a large turn out of deceased Democratic voters. HMB

    Polls close at 8 pm. Even if (hopefully) Brown wins, his vote on Healthcare can be delayed or not ever get under the wire until ballots are received from the military abroad. I'm SURE if Brown wins, the delay will cause his vote NOT to count! We're all hoping for the best in Massachusetts.

    If his seating is delayed or if they try and pull that and this bill is voted in you will see a civil uprising like we haven't seen in a long long time....Not even the Dems think they can pull that type of shenanigans!

    The local news at 6 on the tube says. The Coakley camp is crying voter fraud. They are claiming that in some town and cities the ballots are premarked in Browns favor the Dems lawyer was on the tube explaining this.

    They will use any tactic to try and swing the outcome in their favor.

    Polls close at 8, a Suffolk Univ exit poll has Scott Brown up by 10, I can say that there is a lot of aminosity out there directed at Democrats, and based upon how VICIOUS the Coaklackey campaign has been, it has certainly pushed some voters away from her.......stay tuned the polls will close in 65 minutes!!! I predict the 2nd shot from Mass. heard round the world!

    FYI, because of the inept campaign run by Coakley, they figured she was a shoe in until about 2 weeks ago, so no exit polling was arranged by either party.....

    I saw this on the news too. The reporter said they found (or supposedly found) 5 ballots out of 2 million. I wondered how they got to look over two million ballots so quickly.

    Wait until you see the number of recounts they try to get if they come up short.
