Election night open thread: Polls closed in Mo.; In Mich., Michael Moore whines and gets zinged; Update: Akin wins Mo. GOP Senate primary; Update: Hoekstra, Upton advance in Mich.

Missouri voters made their way to the ballot box today, to vote in several primary races, including the GOP Senate primary. This is an important race; who will go up against the bravely running away Claire McCaskill? They are also voting on a few ballot measures. Polls are now closed.

Missouri’s own Dana Loesch, of Breitbart.com,  is on the scene.

More citizens report and weigh in.

Heh. But not looking good for Democrat Carnahan?

Reportedly, turn-out is quite low.

Polls are also closed in Michigan. Michael Moore weighs in and, of course, pulls the “ZOMG, voter ID laws” card. However, someone at the polls apparently has a snarky sense of humor.

Oh, snap, Michael. She has your number. You and your incessant whining and falsity-filled moaning.

Twitchy will monitor the elections and update as results roll in.

Update:
