Congressional District Closing Times
The graphic below illustrates the LATEST closing time by congressional district, adjusted to Eastern Standard Time. For specific district information in states with multiple time zones, see the appendix at the bottom of this page. Your polling place may not close at this time; check voting hours with your local election officials.
State Poll Closing Times
The table below provides the latest closing time for the polls in each state, adjusted to Eastern Standard Time. States that span multiple time zones, where all polls close at the same local time, are listed twice, along with the associated time zone. Your polling place may close earlier. Do not rely on this table to determine when to vote.
Alongside the clock image are the number of races where the polls will have closed. In most, but not all cases, results will not be reported until after this time.
^ Many polling places close one hour earlier
Where indicated, polls close for those in the (E)astern Time Zone, (C)entral, (M)ountain, (P)acific, (A)laska, (H)awaii-Aleutian.

Appendix: Congressional District Closing Detail
In the congressional district map above, you’ll see that certain states have two closing times (in Eastern Time) listed. This occurs where a state a) spans two time zones b) has polling places that close at the same local time and c) have at least one district that is partially or fully in the more western time zone.
Some districts span multiple time zones, so here again we’re showing the latest closing time by district.
