First state projections: Trump wins Indiana and Kentucky; Clinton takes Vermont

Polls have closed in sev­er­al states in the East­ern time­zone, and the first state pro­jec­tions are in. News net­works are call­ing Bernie Sanders’ home state of Ver­mont for Hillary Clin­ton (3 elec­toral votes), while Indi­ana and Ken­tucky have land­ed in the Trump col­umn. Geor­gia and Vir­ginia are con­sid­ered too close to call.

Exit polling sug­gests that the Geor­gia elec­torate has become more diverse since the last pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, which may pro­duce some inter­est­ing results.

The night is only just begin­ning. There are many, many more pro­jec­tions to come.
