Election Day is finally upon us.
No matter which political party you affiliate yourself with, the important thing is to get out and vote. Not only is it your right, but this year features several close races that are panning out to come right down to the wire.
This year, more than ever, every vote is going to count.
That said, here’s a quick look at the races we’re following here at X101 News:

Polls have shown fluctuating numbers going in either candidate’s favor. This one is going to come down to the final vote.
