Suppose, today, I want to vote in the presidential election in the US. I show up after the polls have officially closed however there are still a few people in line waiting to vote.

Would I still be permitted, by law and not kindness, be obligated to be allowed to cast my vote?

If this varies by state I would be interested in hearing specifically about Nevada and Maryland. The only thing I have found addressing this so far was a news article about Indiana that says that if you are within 50 feet of the polling location at the time the polls close they are obligated to allow you to cast your ballot.
