Poll Projections

By now polling experts from the major TV networks have entered the "quarantine room" where they will be holed up in attempt to prevent projections from getting out until the polls close.

Voting in the New Country

Millions of Americans will cast votes today and many of them are immigrants who enter the voting booth with more then a passing glance to their past. We hear from two of them.

Cartoonist Roz Chast

For over 25 years Roz Chast's squiggly — some would say crumbly — cartoons have chronicled her daily anxieties.
