The Chilean social democratic paper, La Tercera, is reporting that Michelle Bachelt has won the election there.

Edited to add:

Apparently the Interior Ministry has confirmed that she has been elected, with 53% of the vote:

El tercer cómputo oficial dado a conocer por el Ministerio del Interior confirmó el triunfo de Michelle Bachelet, quien obtiene 53,49% de los votos, mientras que Sebastián Piñera logra 46,5% de los sufragios válidamente emitidos a nivel nacional.
