On this nail-biting election day, we check-in across New England with reporters and editors to hear how polling is going across the region.

We also talk to two historians about the context behind the day and the two parties, and we speak to a political analyst on what the votes might mean for the state Legislature and Gov. Charlie Baker.

How are you feeling on election day? What brought you out to the polls? Was it a candidate or an issue?
