WRAL is your election headquarters for the 2018 midterms.

While there are no U.S. Senate or Council of State seats up for election in North Carolina, all seats in the state legislature are on the ballot and almost all are contested. North Carolinians will also vote in congressional, judicial and county races as well as six proposed state constitutional amendments.

On Election Day, polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

As soon as they close, WRAL’s live, continuous coverage begins on your TV, mobile phone or connected device. Watch on WRAL2 (antenna Ch. 5.2 or Spectrum Ch. 1255) or in the WRAL News app for Roku, Apple TV or Amazon Fire.

Debra Morgan and Gerald Owens keep you up to date as the returns come in. Kathryn Brown will break down the Congressional races, and Brad Johansen will be keeping an eye on key races across the country.

Cullen Browder will report from the headquarters of the state Democratic Party, where Rep. David Price and judicial candidate Anita Earls will watch returns with Wake County and General Assembly candidates.

Ken Smith will be at the Republican watch party, where Congressman George Holding will be looking to secure re-election and party leaders hope to hold onto their supermajority in the state legislature.

And back at WRAL Studios, David Crabtree and Laura Leslie will be joined by university professors and political strategists to spot trends and analyze what the vote means for our lives and our wallets.
