  On this edition of Your Call, we discuss what’s at stake in the 2018 midterms. Voters have already turned out in record numbers. We've seen long lines across the country.

Democrats hope to take back the House of Representatives, shifting the balance of power. Citizens across the country have a chance to vote out politicians who have failed to represent them, and launch the political careers of candidates who pledge to do better. The world is watching. How are you making your voice heard?
