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)

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 10:28 PM PT: WI-06: To recap: Despite the AP's call, Glenn Grothman does not appear to have won here without a doubt. Every county but Sheboygan is in, but about two-thirds of precincts are out there. Republican primary rival Joe Leibham is cleaning up in Sheboygan: With the Sheboygan results added to the overall total, Grothman's lead stands only at 36.44 to 33.87 percent.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 10:31 PM PT: Thankfully this does not effect WI-06, but...

You guys, it's finally happening... --> RT @WaukeshaFreeman #Waukesha County Clerk says there's a glitch in the canvass reporting system

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 10:39 PM PT: WI-06: Well it wouldn't be an election night in Wisconsin if everything went smoothly. Sheboygan's site shows more votes than before but only 6 percent of precincts reporting.

If we assume the raw numbers are right, that brings Grothman's lead down to 36.33 to 34.18. But right now that's a lot to assume.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 10:41 PM PT: Milwaukee Sheriff: No call yet, but Clarke leads 52-48 with all precincts in.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 10:47 PM PT: WI-06:

Per WI source: "The entire state went to bed thinking Glenn has it won." Ha - we shall see what they wake up to... #WI06.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 10:53 PM PT: WI-06: Sheboygan has added more votes, and Grothman now holds a 36.13 to 34.63 district wide edge.

However, we can't tell how much of Sheboygan is left. The site says 1/3 of precincts are in, but that's the number they gave thousands of votes ago.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:02 PM PT: WI-06: Grothman's lead is down to 810 votes, or 36.18-34.85. Unfortunately Sheboygan still shows the same 18 out of 53 precincts reporting so we don't know how many votes are left or where they are.  

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:13 PM PT: WI-06: Sheboygan's site has (hopefully) fixes the problems. It now shows the same number of votes, but 74 percent of precincts in. Keep in mind that even if this is right, precincts can vary quite a lot in size.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:22 PM PT: WI-06: There are 18 precincts left in the district. Six are in Leibham's district, two in Grothman's and one was moved from Leibham to Grothman's seat. This race remains unpredictable.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:24 PM PT: Make that 14 precincts.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:31 PM PT: WI-06: More votes are in, and Grothman is only up 552 overall. Unfortunately, the county site once again has stopped updating how many precincts are in and how many are left.  

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:36 PM PT: WI-06:

Sheboygan County Clerk's Office: we will have all results up within the hour.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:48 PM PT (Taniel): With around 800 more votes reporting, Leibham has picked-up an additional 188 votes, cutting Grothman's lead to a mere 364. There are only 7 precincts left, however.

Tue Aug 12, 2014 at 11:58 PM PT (Taniel): Around 1800 ballots were cast in the 2012 GOP primary in the 7 precincts from Sheboygan County that still have to report. Leibham's current lead in the county: 63% to 29%.

12:20 AM PT: WI-06: If the Sheboygan clerk's office keeps to its self imposed deadline, we should have all the results in the next 15 minutes.

12:30 AM PT: WI-06: All the results are in, and Grothman wins by 215 votes. Sheboygan was almost enough to put Leibham over, but not quite.

12:32 AM PT: We'll see in the coming days what recounts/ lawsuits develop here. Check back at Daily Kos Elections as things develop. Good night and thanks for sticking with us through this bizarre race!

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.
