Americans vote in congressional elections

2018-11-06 16:10
After a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race, immigration and other cultural issues, Americans began to cast votes on Tuesday (November 6) to determine the balance of power in the U.S. Congress and shape the future of Donald Trump's presidency. Voters arrived bright and early to polling stations in New York's Manhattan and Arlington, Virginia, outside Washington, where voting appeared to be brisk. The first national elections since Trump captured the White House in a stunning 2016 upset will be a referendum on the polarizing Republican president and his hardline policies, and a test of whether Democrats can turn the energy of the liberal anti-Trump resistance into victories at the ballot box.
