Tonight voters in Kansas, Michigan, and Washington hold their primaries (Missouri is up too, but there are no notable statewide or Federal races to watch). Our guide to the key races can be found here. Note that in Washington, the top-two vote-getters will advance to November regardless of party. 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):

Kansas (8 PM for Central timezone, 9 PM for Mountain timezone) | Michigan (8 PM for Eastern timezone, 9 PM for Central timezone) | Missouri (8 PM) | Washington (11 PM)

6:00 PM PT: MI-03: Republican incumbent Justin Amash leads challenger Brian Ellis as expected, taking 55-45 with 8 percent of precincts in. In Kent County, where both candidates are from, Amash leads 58-42.

6:01 PM PT: MI-04: With 7 percent reporting in this open GOP primary, state Sen. John Moolenaar leads Paul Mitchell 51-40. In Mitchell's native Saginaw, Moolenaar is up 48-42.

6:15 PM PT (David Nir): MI-13: It's super early, but with 3% reporting, veteran Rep. John Conyers is up just 51-49 on challenger Horace Sheffield.

6:21 PM PT (David Nir): MI-08: Mike Bishop seems to have the GOP nomination well in hand. He's up 58-42 on Tom McMillin with 30% reporting and leads in every county. Meanwhile, Eric Schertzing trails Susan Grettenberger for the Democratic nomination, 44-31. Schertzing is the pick of national Democrats.

6:24 PM PT (David Nir): KS-Sen, -Gov (R): We're still at just 4% reporting in Kansas, but Sen. Pat Roberts is holding an unimpressive 51-38 lead on Milton Wolf. In the governor's race, deeply unpopular Gov. Sam Brownback is also up an unimpressive 63-37 on his utter Some Dude opponent, Jennifer Winn.

6:25 PM PT (David Nir): MI-11 (R): It looks like the accident will soon be over: Rep. Kerry Bentivolio trails attorney Dave Trott by a 2-to-1 margin with half the vote counted. Bye bye, Bad Santa.

6:28 PM PT (David Nir): MI-06 (R): The AP has called the race for Rep. Fred Upton, who is currently dispatching his underfunded challenger Jim Bussler 69-31. Upton was never in much danger, but it pays to pay attention. Just ask Eric Cantor.

6:32 PM PT (David Nir): MI-14 (D): Brenda Lawrence currently has a 120-vote lead on Rudy Hobbs; both are at 39 percent. But Hobbs should have the advantage: Almost all of the vote has been counted in Oakland County, where Lawrence narrowly led. Hobbs is beating her by double digits in Wayne County (Detroit), though, and he should make gains as more votes are tallied.

6:37 PM PT (David Nir): KS-Sen: On the Democratic side, prosecutor Chad Taylor, the ostensible frontrunner, has just a 51-49 lead on attorney Patrick Wiesner with 13% reporting.

6:41 PM PT (David Nir): MI-11: Bye bye, Kerry. The AP has called the GOP primary for foreclosure attorney Dave Trott, who crushes Rep. Kerry Bentivolio 66-34. For Democrats, Bobby McKenzie and Anil Kumar are both now at 33, with Nancy Skinner at 28; Kumar's up by fewer than 100 votes.

6:44 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.
