En español | The U.S. midterm elections are Tuesday, Nov. 8, and voters who haven’t already voted early or by mail will take to the polls to decide federal, state and local contests, along with some state constitutional amendments and ballot initiatives.

More than 40 million Americans are already believed to have voted early or by mail, and millions more are expected at polling places across the country.

We’ve spoken with election officials in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, for our comprehensive guides to when, where and how to vote this year.
