As you go out today to cast your vote, there are many things you need to keep in mind.

Photos by Joselyn King Ohio County Pollworkers at the City-County Building smile at the conclusion of early voting, which ended at 5 p.m. Saturday.

"It's probably more than what I would expect", Johnson said. Early reports from scattered voting locations indicate voter turnout is more in line with what would be expected of a Presidential election.

"In midterm elections, a lot of decisions to show up to vote or not to vote is about sending a national message", Seattle University political science instructor Patrick Schoettmer said. "There's lines in some polling locations". "We're open from 7 [a.m.] to 7 [p.m.] Please exercise your right to vote". After months of campaigning and dozens of polls, voters get the final say.

When you enter your address, the site will pull up your assigned poll location where you can vote, along with the hours that the poll is open, and relevant laws about voting in your area.

"Even with that problem, we took care of it", said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez.

Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap has predicted turnout as high as 65 percent, a robust figure for an off-year election.

Ryan went on to suggest that the rainy conditions in NY on Election Day may have led to wetness from peoples' clothes to transfer onto their ballots. Light rain didn't seem to dampen voters' enthusiasm at a community center in Minnetonka, a suburb west of Minneapolis Tuesday where about 15 people were lined up to vote as the three polling places opened.

The league also announced November 18 schedule changes for the Eagles-Saints and Steelers-Jaguars matchups. The game, which was originally scheduled to be played at noon CST, has been moved to 7:20 p.m.

Minneapolis estimates almost 70,000 voters have cast their ballots as of noon.

If you get a provisional ballot, here's what will happen, according to the state legislatures conference.

This is how you can check to see if your vote was received and accepted.

If you do not have a valid ID, or if you're not in the voting system, do not leave the polling place.

An already registered voter can also confirm an unregistered voter's address, if they both live in the same precinct, in order for that person to register to vote.

The figures bode well for Election Day turnout on Tuesday.

"I was just talking to one of my co-directors, and she said that they're expecting record-breaking numbers nationwide, so we're pretty excited", Kelch said.
