The first real wave of poll closings came in at 8 p.m. EST, and we've got some early calls from the networks. Mostly they're just giving us the unsurprising results for the moment.
On the Democratic side, CNN has called Illinois, Sen. Barack Obama's home state, for him. They've given Oklahoma to Sen. Hillary Clinton. MSNBC agrees with the Illinois call, but has yet to call Oklahoma.
On the Republican side, both CNN and MSNBC have given Mitt Romney his home state of Massachusetts, and both have called Connecticut and Illinois for McCain. MSNBC has called New Jersey for McCain as well.
Update: CNN has also called New Jersey for McCain; MSNBC has called Tennessee for Clinton, though CNN is still holding off on that one.
Update 2: Looks like McCain takes Delaware.
Update 3: Huckabee -- who is having a very good night in the estimation of MSNBC's many pundits -- gets Alabama.
