centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms, is appropriate for any one- or two-semester

Sylvia Mader typifies an icon of science education. Her dedication to her students, coupled with her
clear, concise writing-style has benefited the education of thousands of students over the past three
decades.

Summary

Voters are casting ballots for all 435 members of the House of Representatives, 35 of the 100 seats in the
Senate, and 36 out of 50 state governors

Democrats need to unseat at least 23 Republicans to take control of the House, and at least two to seize
the Senate
Many see the election as a referendum on President Donald Trump's presidency

Attack ads and race-baiting allegations have made it one of the ugliest campaigns of recent times

The first polls are set to close at 18:00 EST (23:00 GMT), with first projections and results to follow from
then

An election warning from the FBI

In a similar vein to Facebook's action, the FBI put out a joint statement with other law enforcement
agencies last night that election meddling is not a thing of the past.

"Americans should be aware that foreign actors - and Russia in particular - continue to try to influence
public sentiment and voter perceptions through actions intended to sow discord," the agency said.

"They can do this by spreading false information about political processes and candidates, lying about
their own interference activities, disseminating propaganda on social media, and through other tactics."

Their advice? Get voting info at the local election office. Think about what you're reading, know your
source, and read a mix of sources.

Where Native Americans could make history

U.S. Democratic Congressional candidate Deb Haaland takes the stage at a Democratic Unity rally in
Albuquerque, New Mexico

ReutersCopyright: Reuters

Polls and early voting data suggest Deb Haaland will defeat her Republican opponentImage caption: Polls
and early voting data suggest Deb Haaland will defeat her Republican opponent

Among the record number of women running for office is Deb Haaland, who is on the brink of becoming
the first Native American woman ever to be elected to the US congress.

Ms Haaland is running as a Democrat for the US House of Representatives in her home state of New
Mexico.

"On my mom's side I'm a 35th generation New Mexican," says Ms Haaland.

She is among a record number of Native Americans - 104 by one measure - running for state and federal
office this year. Fifty-five are women. More than 75 are Democrats.

Together they represent more than 50 of the 573 federally-recognised tribes in the United States.

Facebook shuts down suspicious accounts

Facebook says it's shut down a series of pages - and Instagram accounts - for suspicious behavior
connected to the election.
In a blog post last night, the company said it was contacted by law enforcement about accounts that might
be "linked to foreign entities".

View more on TwitterView more on twitter

The social network said it's shut down around 30 Facebook accounts and 85 Instagram ones while it
investigates.

And it said it would normally not announce such things so early - but given the election season, it wanted
to "let people know about the action we’ve taken and the facts as we know them today".

Oprah sends message to Georgians

One particularly interesting race is in the state of Georgia, where Stacey Abrams is vying to become the
first black woman to be a US governor.

The divisive race included a faked automatic phone call pretending to be from Oprah Winfrey,
campaigning against Ms Abrams.

Overnight, Winfrey herself took to social media to set the record straight.
"I heard people were making racist robo-calls in my name against Stacey Abrams - who I am 100% for,"
Winfrey said, wearing a t-shirt with the message: "VOTE".

"Jesus don't like ugly. And we know what to do about that - vote," she said.

Getting the vote out

A favourite reason used by many Americans for not voting has often been that they’re too busy, and
there’s too much going on at work.

But now it may not be such a good excuse. Nearly 150 companies like Walmart, LeviStrauss and PayPal
have signed up to the Make Time to Vote campaign.

The companies are offering paid time off and other schemes to give employees a better chance to get to
the polls.
Ride-hailing firms Lyft and Uber are offering discounted rides to polling stations.

Voters line up to cast their ballot just before the polls open in the mid-terms in Miami, Florida

Polls begin to open across US

Welcome to our live coverage of the crucial mid-term elections in the US.

Voters will head to the polls nationwide on Tuesday, but they won’t all do so at the same time.

Polls open and close at different times, mostly due to the different time zones (the US has six in total).

Voters in Vermont will be the first to mark their ballots, with polls there opening at 05:00 local time
(10:00 GMT). The majority of the eastern US will see polls open at 06:00 or 07:00 local time.

Most polling places will remain open for at least 12 hours. The first to close will be Kentucky and
Indiana, at 18:00. Between 19:00 and 19:30, more polls will close across the southern states, including for
key races in Georgia and Florida.

At this point, it could become clear whether there’s a wave and if it’s blue (Democratic) or red
(Republican).
