Seven states are holding primaries or runoffs tonight. Our guide to the key races can be found here. Oklahoma will hold a runoff on Aug. 26 in races where no candidate wins more than 50 percent tonight. We'll be bringing you tonight's results as they come in, and you can keep track of all the winners just below:
Results & Poll Closing Times (all times Eastern):

Colorado (9 PM) | Maryland (8 PM) | Mississippi (8 PM) | New York (9 PM)
Oklahoma (8 PM) | South Carolina (7 PM) | Utah (10 PM)

7:35 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: Kaboom! The rest of those Jones County votes landed with a thud. The good news for Chris McDaniel is that they boosted him a lot; it's now a 50-50 race with Cochran leading by only a little more than a thousand votes. The bad news for McDaniel is that was his last major pocket of strength, and it's not clear where he makes up the rest.

7:38 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-21: Word is that Matt Doheny has conceded the GOP primary in the 21st to Elise Stefanik. No AP call yet, but Stefanik leads 60-40 with about three-quarters of the vote in.

7:42 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-13: Another lead change on a bonkers night. Charlie Rangel's now leading Adriano Espaillat 47-45, as more Harlem precincts show up.

7:44 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: Thad Cochran's edging closer to victory, with 95% reporting, and now back up to a 51-49 lead with a nearly 4,000 vote spread again. It's a fascinating comeback from the first round of the primary, and probably will be a case study in GOTV for years to come.

7:46 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: Here's another way of looking at McDaniel's problem. There are 86 (out of 1,832) precincts left to report. And of those, 15 are in Holmes County, which is 83% African-American.

7:53 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-22: Things are looking a little more comfy for Richard Hanna in the GOP primary in the 22nd; he leads Claudia Tenney 53-47 with 88% reporting. Chenango Co. hasn't showed up in the AP reports yet, but if it were, he'd still lead by 6 with 94% reporting. If he wins tonight, he won't have to avail himself of the Independence Party line to win in November; in fact, he won't have any opposition whatsoever.

7:54 PM PT (David Jarman): MD-Gov: There's an AP call on the mostly-forgotten GOP side of the race; Larry Hogan is the winner, leading David Craig 42-31, and he'll be a speed bump versus Dem Anthony Brown in November.

7:58 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: We're up to 97% reporting in Mississippi, and Thad Cochran's holding steady with at 51-49, with a 5,662 vote edge now. Unfortunately, we may be on track for some real ugliness in the coming days, as the hard right realizes that alleged-RINO Cochran pulled out an unexpected victory with a big assist from black voters.

8:00 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-21: The AP gave the checkmark to Elise Stefanik, so that one's in the books too, at 60-40 with 84% reporting.

8:04 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-13: Things seem to be gelling in the 13th, where we're up to 54% reporting and it's still 47-45 in Charlie Rangel's favor in the Dem primary. So, he might eke out those last two years after all.

8:06 PM PT (David Nir): The liveblog continues 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.
