11:30 I’m hearing from Billings voters that the arrangements at the Metra tonight were incredibly chaotic, with people waiting in line for 4+ hours, being placed in the wrong line, and more. Not sure the centralized voting location has really worked out there.

11:13 p.m All Missoula County ballots will be counted by 4:00 a.m., says the Missoulian. Northern Broadcasting Network’s Aaron Flint says that people are still registering and voting in Billings. Likely to be doing so for another hour and a half.

10:48 p.m. With 150,384 votes in, Senator Tester leads Representative Rehberg 55%-39%.

10:46 p.m. Laura Lundquist at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that there are 60 people left to register and vote in Bozeman. Could be another hour for Gallatin County results to come out.
