Early exit polls from day one of our Summer Superlatives contest indicate only one thing: these races are too close to call tonight. With three sets of rock-solid competitors and a slew of die-hard supporters, FishbowlDC glory is still anyone’s for the taking.
To spice up the competition, we’ve hidden the real-time results of each race (8pm). But don’t let that dissuade you from casting a vote or campaigning for your favorite candidate. Each poll will remain open for 24 hours from the time it went live today and final results will be revealed in a very special post honoring the winners next week. Until then, here’s your 10pm exit poll snapshot.
