The much-talked-about midterm elections are almost at hand for northeast Georgians and people all over the country.
Tuesday is election day with polls in Georgia open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
The Hall County ballots contain contested races ranging from Governor to county school board.  Also included are the constitutional amendments and referendums that are being voted on statewide.  Sunday Brunch Alcohol Sales are on the ballot in several places in the area and Flowery Branch is holding a special election for a city council seat.

There was a record turnout for early voting in Hall County and the rest of the state.  Early voting in Georgia ended Friday.  Other states also reported record turnouts.

Nationwide, every seat in the U.S. House of Representatives and several U.S. Senate seats are up for grabs, with Republicans determined to hang onto the majority in both houses and Democrats making a push to take control of both.
