Getting this thread started for the Mississippi and Alabama Primaries and the Hawaii Caucuses.

What time do the polls close in the southern states and what time are the caucuses in Hawaii (HT & ET)?
Logged

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

CNN results for AL, HI, MS, and AS here:

http://edition.cnn.com/election/2012/primaries/dates/20120313

AP results:

Alabama

Hawaii

Mississippi

AL and MS polls close at 7pm Central / 8pm Eastern.  Hawaii doesn't close until 8pm Hawaii time / 2am Eastern.  I don't know about American Samoa.  Haven't found any details on the caucuses there online.  But it's an hour behind Hawaii in terms of time zones, so it could be pretty late.

The Missouri caucuses actually begin tonight too, but just for one county (Barry):

Nope. Polls close at 1 after midnight, France/Austria time.

This is also when CNN International starts broadcasting.

Hogan Gidley, Santorum's communication director, is on Fox.  He's basically conceding AL and MS.

Unlike [Western] Samoa, American Samoa is on our side of the Date Line, so it's still only 4:30 AM Tuesday there at the moment.

No doubt everyone here already knows this, but below is a copy and past from Politico as to where team Mittens plans to rack up the margins in its attempt to carry both states:

Quote
Itís places such as Mobile where Romney will have to perform strongly if he is to pull out a victory Tuesday. His formula in both states is remarkably similar: run well along the less socially conservative Gulf Coast, clean up in the largest city and its heavily GOP suburbs (Birmingham and Jefferson County in Alabama, Jackson and Hinds, Madison and Rankin counties in Mississippi) and pull votes out of the educated population hubs in the northern part of the state (Huntsville [the other Madison County, this time in AL] in Alabama and DeSoto County, just south of Memphis, in Mississippi).

I'll be on an airplane from 6pm to 10pm, unfortunately. Hopefully Gingrich (or Santorum!) wins these when I've landed.

Probably for the best I have to be up early tomorrow and thus will be missing this, it'd be too depressing to see Romney carry both states. Sad

Just reporting, not commenting.

I would read into that that the campaign is looking at the polls and thinks a loss is likely.  Certainly, they were downplaying expectations.

Downplaying expectations in MS & AL seems like the rational thing for Santorum's campaign to do no matter where they're at in the polls.

Hah, some actual details about the American Samoa caucus:

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/293354/how-american-samoa-caucus-works-brian-bolduc

Quote
From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. American Samoa Standard Time (UTC-11) tonight, Republicans on this tiny island in the Pacific Ocean will hold their caucus.

So the caucus ends at 7pm local time, which is 2am US Eastern time, same time that the Hawaii caucus ends.  Also, it's expected that perhaps as few as 50 people will show up to caucus, and so they're holding the caucus at just one location, the Toa Bar & Grill:

http://news.yahoo.com/american-samoa-gop-ready-caucus-bar-181941669.html

Quote
Local GOP chairman Victor T. Tofaeono, a superdelegate, is hopeful caucus attendees will agree to commit all nine delegates to one candidate.

Didn't think I'd ever be so interested in a mid-March election in AL and MS. 

I'll go out on a limb and say Gingrich wins both of these... although I think Santorum winning both would be the most interesting outcome.
