Polling stations brace for barrage of voters as election day arrives in U.S.

Canadians are closely watching what takes place across the border today. 

Viewing parties are expected across the country tonight for the American midterm elections.

No one knows yet if it will be red, blue or purple, but a tidal wave of energized voters is expected to flood polling stations across the United States today as Americans deliver their early verdict on President Donald Trump.

Unlike past midterm votes and their middling level of interest, the 2018 edition has generated strong early voting turnout.
