After months of campaigning and, in many states, days or weeks of early voting, Election Day for the 2022 midterms is finally here. Voters will decide races for all 435 House seats, 35 Senate seats, and 36 governorships across the country.

More than 122 million Americans voted in the 2018 midterm elections, the highest number of voters for a non-presidential year since 1978, according to Pew Research Center. Will 2022 top it? 

This year, some states reported record turnout in early voting. In Georgia, the secretary of state's office said more than 2.5 million early ballots were cast by the end of Friday before Election Day.

"Georgia voters came out in near Presidential-level numbers," said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

If you are voting on Election Day, poll closing times vary by state. If you are waiting in line when the polls close, stay in line, because you still have the right to vote.
