12:21am

12:19am

While the AP has called Pennsylvania for Donald Trump, ABC has yet to do so, meaning Trump remains at 245 electoral votes in ABC's electoral college tally. A win in PA would put Trump within five electoral votes of the presidency.

Most of the votes in liberal Pima County have yet to be counted, which could be why Arizona has yet to be called for Donald Trump. With 43 percent of the vote in, Clinton leads Trump by 47,000 votes in Pima County. Trump leads Clinton by 68,000 votes overall in Arizona.

11:38pm

The Associated Press projects Donald Trump will win Pennsylvania. That puts him right on the cusp of the 270 electoral votes he needs to become president-elect.

8:20pm

Bad early news for Proposition 205 supporters but good news for those who support Prop 206. With nearly 1.3 million votes counted, Prop 205, which would legalize recreational marijuana in Arizona, is down by 85,000 votes, while Prop 206, which would increase Arizona's minimum wage to $12 per hour by 2020, has a healthy 275,000-vote lead.

6:55pm

6:49pm

Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by roughly 100,000 votes in Florida with 91% of precincts reporting. Clinton leads Trump by just over 2 points in North Carolina and Ohio, but still a lot of votes to be counted in both of those states.
