Voting began in the crucial midterm elections in the United States which could be seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump's two-year term. 

Polling started in the eastern states including Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Virginia at 6:00 am local time, amidst last-ditch effort by  President Donald Trump to retain majority in the House of Representatives.

Americans would elect 435 members of the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 Senate seats, 36 governors' posts and seats in state legislatures across the country in the mid-term polls.

The Republican party currently has majority in both the Senate and the House and Trump and his team left no stone unturned to campaign in favour of his Republican party.

US House of Representatives - similar to India's Lok Sabha - has 435 seats, of which the Republicans in the current Congress has 235 seats and the Democrats have 193. 

Elections for all the members of the House are held every two years.
