When will we know election results for the 2016 U.S. presidential election?
It’s hard to determine when the United States will know who its next President is. What we do know is when the polls will close. Florida, North Carolina and Ohio are three of the big swing states that will help determine the winner of the 2016 presidential election. Florida polls close at 7:00 p.m. EST, while North Carolina and Ohio polls will close at 7:30 p.m. EST.
So, when will we know election results for 2016? Well, it likely won’t be until at least these states have closed their polls and votes are counted. However, other states won’t finish voting until much later into the night. This means it could be closer to midnight EST when we learn the results of the 2016 presidential election. Read

Janet Reno — the first female Attorney General of the U.S. — has died at age 78.
Here are 9 things to remember her by:
She was Valedictorian at Coral Gables High School in Miami-Dade County, Florida, where she was debating champion.
Reno graduated from Cornell University, then enrolled at Harvard Law School, where she graduated in 1963.
From 1963 to 1971, her career started to take off as she joined the staff of the Judiciary Committee of the Florida House of Representatives.
She joined the Dade County State Attorney’s office in 1973, then left in 1976 to become a partner at a private law firm.
Bill Clinton nominated Reno as the U.S. Attorney General in 1993, eventually becoming the first woman to serve in that position.
She achieved a lot of impressive feats during her time in office, including the capture of the Unabomber.
Reno also helped to capture and convict those responsible for the plane bombing of the World Trade Center.
One of perhaps her most controversial moments was the armed seizure of six-year-old Elian Gonzalez, who was taken back to his father in Cuba.
She also brought a lawsuit to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) for violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act.
Rest in peace, Janet. Read

Peter Thiel has publicly expressed his support for Donald Trump and received plenty of backlash.
However, the tech billionaire stands by his convictions and he has issued a statement explaining why he believes Trump would make a good president, as well as why the media has taken everything he says a little to literally.
At an hour long presser at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., Thiel said he agreed to donate $1.25 million to Trump’s campaign after being asked for money from the Republican candidate, which he didn’t realize Trump needed. Read
