It's here! The polls opened for  midterm Election Day  at 8 a.m. Tuesday. 

You've done your homework , studied up, and know the names you're going to choose. The chance to vote early or by mail has come and gone, but you can still vote at your local polling place (or drop off your ballot at a designated drop box in certain counties) until 8 p.m. Tuesday — 9 p.m., if you're an Iowa voter. 

Have questions? Start here for answers about required ID, whether you're entitled to take time off work, and what to do if you're turned away at your polling place.  

Need to check the weather? We have you covered there, too
