Millions of dollars have been spent on ads. Thousands of hours pounding the pavement, knocking on doors, making calls or sending texts. And it all comes down to today for the 2018 U.S. midterm elections.
All 435 House seats are on ballots across the country – 35 out of the hundred senate seats, and 36 of the 50 governors.
As of Monday morning, at least 31million people had voted early, blowing early voting numbers from the last midterms out of the water.
Both democrats and republicans hope that means good news for them.
“The Republican agenda is the American dream and that’s what we’re doing. We’re bringing back the American dream,” said President Donald Trump.
And when it comes to politics, the last-minute push tends to mean last minute attacks.
“I heard people were making racist robo calls in my name against Stacey Abrams who I’m 100% for in Georgia. I just want to say Jesus don’t like ugly,” said Oprah Winfrey.
Sen. Bernie Sanders said “what this election is really about is whether we feel comfortable having a President who is a pathological liar.”
But whatever drove people to the polls over the last few weeks, there’s hope that trend will continue Tuesday.
