Voters took to the polls in Los Angeles on Tuesday to cast their votes for the US midterm elections. Some voters expressed their hopes for the Democratic Party to obtain a majority of congresspeople in the House of Representatives, while others charged against US President Donald Trump. «I am highly, highly confident that the Democrats will take back the House. I think that's almost a done... Еще deal,» said one Democrat voter. The House currently has 235 Republicans, 193 Democrats and 7 vacant seats. A total of 218 seats are needed to control the House. Democrats would have to gain at least 23 seats won by Republicans in 2016 to gain control of it. The first polls are expected to close at 23:00 GMT on Tuesday.
