Open thread for primary results, and if you voted today, share your experience in the comments. We have heard there were voting machine problems in Arizona.

Karoli adds: OH ARIZONA!

This is just unacceptable chicanery:

Update: Trump fanboi Ron DeSantis it is for FL-Governor


Darren Soto wins in FL-09 against Alan Grayson
Bill Nelson and Rick Scott will square off for the Senate

But here's the shocker: Democrat Andrew Gillum is leading the Democratic field for Governor by nearly 2 points! Gillum, an African-American progressive Democrat, is ahead by nearly 27,000 votes over his two opponents. Results here. Gillum has been a strong opponent of the NRA, which is another victory.

More to come, stay with us!

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Gillum is the projected winner!

UPDATE 3: Martha McSally is winning the Maricopa early vote by 23% or so, with Kelli Ward in second place, and Joe Arpaio bringing up the rear with around 19%. It's almost like if Ward and Arpaio hadn't split the hard-right vote, the Trump wing would be in better shape. As it is, it looks like the GOP establishment will prevail.

UPDATE 4: Aaand, McSally is declared the winner, based on the early vote alone.

Can you help us out?
