KUT is following a number of federal, state and local races throughout Central Texas.

People in line when polls close at 7 p.m. will still be allowed to vote, so there's no telling when all the ballots will be counted. The surge in vote-by-mail applications this year could mean final results won't be known by the end of the night.

We'll be updating results below as they are announced.
