Who won the mid-term election?

Who Won the 2018 Election?

While it is too early to determine how many people voted in this election, as it is, this election shows that the winner is America! 

People stood in line for hours to have their voice heard. 
And for some, they got pizza!
“Americans are hungry for democracy and are turning out in record numbers to vote,” reads the group’s website. “But that means long lines and sometimes empty stomachs, which might discourage these brave patriots from performing their civic duty.” 
As of Tuesday morning, the organization has sent 1,344 pizzas to 99 polling places around the country, according to its website. It’s raised about $65,000 this year to pay for the pies.

They volunteered for candidates they believed in.

Some voters voted even though the electricity was out in Tennessee.

As of early Tuesday morning, at least 33 million people have voted early nationwide, according to data collected by Catalist, a data company that works with Democrats and others, to compile counts of ballots cast before Election Day, either early in-person or by mail.
Women elected to office
At least 98 women will be elected to the House of Representatives -- 84 Democrats, 14 Republicans -- and 12 will join the Senate -- 10 Democrats, two Republicans -- according to the latest projections by ABC News.
There will be a lot of disappointed people this morning, but that happens with every election. Some win and some lose. When we do not use our right to vote, the country loses. 


But no matter who were the declared winners in the races we paid attention to, America is the winner because of all the people who voted!
