The elections say they start in one hour, which I'm assuming will be 4 p.m. my time (EST, US). They say they start at 20:00 (8 p.m) though, what time zone does this operate in?

gotcha! And thanks for the quick response to the noob question :) –  jlehenbauer Jun 15 '12 at 18:50

Stack Exchange uses UTC for all times that I'm aware of. You can check the UTC time from the dropdown by your name.
