Three hours to go

As you can see on the map below, polls close in the Eastern Time Zone parts of Indiana and Kentucky in 3 hours. For Indiana, this is most of the state, except that the key Gary area is in the Central Time Zone. Most networks will probably hold off calling Indiana for at least another hour because of this. Kentucky may get called early, since the major Obama support in that state is in Louisville and Lexington, which both are in the Eastern Time Zone. Since the whole state is going to go heavily for McCain anyway, the additionally McCain-leaning areas in the Central part of the state won't change the overall result. Kentucky will likely be the first state called.
