Roll call begins

The roll call is underway.

The only question is how many of Clinton's three dozen delegates decided to back Obama for the roll call.

Wisconsin delegates began casting their ballots at their hotel this morning, but the results won't be official until later. It's unclear if Wisconsin will get the chance to announce its tally publicly before the roll is cut off.

UPDATE: The roll call is cut off at the New York delegation, when Hillary Clinton moves that the convention rules be suspended to nominate Barack Obama. Speaker Pelosi presided over the motion, approved by a voice vote of the full delegation.
