Tonight voters in Connecticut, Minnesota, and Wisconsin hold their primaries. Our guide to the key races can be found here. 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):

Connecticut (8 PM) | Minnesota (9 PM) | Wisconsin (9 PM)

5:11 PM PT: CT-Gov: At the moment Politico is ahead of the AP. They have Tom Foley leading John McKinney 62-38 with 2 percent in.

5:17 PM PT: CT-Gov: Via Politico about 6 percent is reporting and Foley continues to lead 62-38.

5:26 PM PT: CT-Gov: We're up to 11 percent reporting and Foley still holds a 62-38 lead. It's still early but it's looking like this is going about how we all expected. McKinney ran a hard-hitting last-minute ad trying to take advantage of a major Foley gaffe, where Foley told workers at a soon-to-be-closed factory that they had failed. It looks like it was wasn't enough this time, but expect Democratic Gov. Dan Malloy to run similar ads in the fall.

5:40 PM PT: CT-Gov: Now at 20 percent reporting and Foley up 60-40. Malloy probably getting what he wants right now: Foley has money, but more likely to get himself in trouble with stupid comments than McKinney.  

5:46 PM PT: CT-Gov: It's getting a little closer, but probably not fast enough for McKinney. Foley is down to 58-42 with 28 percent in.

5:56 PM PT: CT-Gov: Thirty-seven percent in and Foley is up 58-42. Not the greatest result for a guy who has been the presumptive nominee for four years.  

6:01 PM PT: CT-Gov: The AP has called this for Foley. And just in time: Polls have just closed in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

6:17 PM PT: The first results are coming in for Minnesota.

6:19 PM PT: MN-Gov: The SoS has some early results, but far too few to make any conclusions.

6:22 PM PT: WI-06: Via Politico, about 5 percent of results are in here and Glen Grothman, the craziest one in the bunch, leads Joe Leibham 48-26, with Duey further back.

6:25 PM PT: WI-06: So far all the votes are coming from Fond du Lac County, where Grothman's from. He's also the only one to represent any of it.

6:28 PM PT: 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.
