Tonight we're liveblogging the Wisconsin recall elections as well as primaries in six states: California, Iowa, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota. Click here for our guide to all the key primaries, and stick with us as we cover all of tonight's interesting races.

Results: Calif. | Iowa | Montana | New Jersey | New Mexico | S. Dakota | Wisconsin

6:00 PM PT (kos): CNN exit polls say 50-50 Walker-Barrett split.

6:03 PM PT (kos): To add, since it's not always clear -- exit polls are POLLs. They have a margin of error. So they get adjusted continuously over the evening as real results start streaming in.

6:05 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray):
screen shot of CNN showing WI recall results are 50/50

6:09 PM PT (kos): Remember that We Ask America poll? 54-42. Ha ha ha ha!

Wait, did I just see CNN show that exit polls show Obama 54, Romney 42?

6:09 PM PT (Chris Bowers): Walker won independents 56%-42% in 2010. According to exit polls, he only won them 50%-49% this time around.

6:11 PM PT (Steve Singiser): A little bit southwest of Wisconsin, polls have now closed in South Dakota, and results are coming in fast. Matt Varilek looks very likely to be the Democratic nominee against Jeff Barth, according to early returns. He leads Barth 74-26, with just under a quarter of the vote in.

6:13 PM PT (kos): The first batch of exit polls had Obama winning 51-45, which means that the second batch (afternoon voters) was heavily Democratic.

In other words, the after-work vote.

6:13 PM PT (jeffmd): In NJ-09, we're seeing some Kaptur/Kucinich-esque margins. Pascrell leads by a stunning 90-10 in his home county of Passaic, while Rothman commands Bergen 75-25. Much much more of Passaic is reporting, so Pascrell sports an 88-12 overall lead at the moment.

6:16 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

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.
