Voters head to the polls today for a midterm election that’s widely seen as a referendum on Donald Trump’s presidency, with both houses of Congress and 36 governor’s races in the balance. Thirty-six million Americans voted early this year, with participation high among young people and people of color. That’s up from 27 million four years ago, leading many to predict a record turnout for a midterm election.

Voters and civil rights groups in Texas and Georgia have filed complaints in what are two of the most closely watched states this midterm election.
