Polls are open bright and early today at 7am and you’ll be able to drop by and cast your vote until 8pm.

There are several swing districts in Southern California that might play a role in whether Republicans hold on to the House or whether the “blue wave” will push the House of Representatives to the left.

We’ll be bringing results to you after the polls close, but right now we check in with reporters at various polling locations to check in on turnout and atmosphere.

Have you voted yet? How was your experience?
