Why do we vote on this random Tuesday in early November — not the first Tuesday, but the first Tuesday after the first Monday — and what does that mean for voter turnout? Nick Andersen, a producer for WBUR’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook, takes a closer look.

Still wondering where to put your money on the Senate races tonight?
There's been a lot of contradictory data flying around in the final hours and days of Campaign 2014, so don't feel alone. You can find polls in swing states that say the races are too close to call, and you can find others that show the Republican candidate opening a lead. You can, of course, listen to the party advocates and pundits, but while highly expert they are always pushing a given point of view.
