Election Day 2014

Today millions of Americans are planning to head out to the polls, while millions more completed early and absentee voting throughout the nation this fall.

Nearly every major newspaper of record is now predicting a Republican takeover of the U.S. Senate, with Republicans also gaining seats in the House, potentially leading to its biggest majority since WWII. The Washington Post is predicting that 79% of the seats will change hands. However, two states are not expected to be decided tonight, Louisiana and Georgia, which require that the winner receive over 50% of the vote. Interestingly, Georgia’s scheduled run-off would not be until January 6, three days after Congress is sworn in. Alaska is likely to change hands, but that election will not be called until late into the night. To see who is on every federal ballot in the nation and to keep track for yourself, click here.

Experts have been saying that two states to watch are New Hampshire and Kentucky. If things end early and Republican Scott Brown wins in the Granite State, things should look very good nationwide for the GOP. However, if Kentucky challenger Allison Lundegren Grimes manages to give the presumptive leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell a stronger fight, it could be a very good sign nationally for Democrats.
