We're liveblogging all of tonight's key races from coast to coast. For a handy guide to all the major contests, click here.

Statewide Results: KY | ME | MS | NJ | NY | OH | PA | VA

Specific Races: AZ-SD-18 | IA-SD-18 | MI-HD-51 | OR-01

Called races: KY-Gov (Beshear, D) | KY-AG (Conway, D) | KY-Ag Commish (Comer, R) | KY-SoS (Grimes, D) | KY-Auditor (Edelen, D) | KY-Treasurer (Hollenbach, D) | OH Issue 2 (good guys) | ME Question 1 (good guys)

7:16 PM PT: Nothing on the AZ SoS site yet, but Greg Giroux says that Russell Pearce is down 53-45.

7:21 PM PT: MI-HD-51 recall: Now 74% in, recall now failing 50.6-49.4.

7:22 PM PT: Can't see how MS's personhood amendment won't go down to a crashing defeat. It's 60-40 against with 43% reporting.

7:24 PM PT: In Erie County, NY, Dem Mark Polloncarz has taken a 200-vote lead with 28% reporting. In Monroe County, NY, incumbent Maggie Brooks is up 12 with 44% in. Nothing from Suffolk County, NY. (These are all county executive races.)

7:24 PM PT: Houck up 196 votes in SD-17. Two precincts left. One good for us. One bad.

7:31 PM PT: In the Virginia state Senate, Dems have held the line downstate, including in SD-01 (Miller), SD-21 (Edwards) and SD-38 (Puckett), with only Reynolds in SD-20 losing so far. Control rests on Edd Houck's narrow lead in SD-17 and NoVA Dems coming through. The major points of concern there are Toddy Puller in SD-36 and Dave Marsden in SD-37; Mark Herring in SD-33 and George Barker in SD-39 (whose narrow victory got us control in 2007) are looking a bit better. Our one pickup opportunity, the newly created SD-13, has not really come through (though hopefully may in future cycles), with the GOP out to a 56-44 lead.

7:36 PM PT: AP calls MS Init 26 (personhood amendment). Measure fails by broad margin, 58-42.

7:39 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): The liveblog continues in thread #9.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
