At the Ohio Secretary of State's website from 7:30PM until 9:00PM it said "Election Results Reporting - The United States District Court has issued an order requiring the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to extend the hours of voting to 9 p.m. E.S.T at polling places designated in the court order. As a result of the court's order, ALL 88 county Boards of Elections have been directed not to report any election results to the public or the Ohio Secretary of State's office until 9 p.m.; therefore, the Ohio Secretary of State's office Web site will not report results until 9 p.m."

This didn't stop the AP (as reported on the WHIO-TV website) from reporting results at 7:45PM.
