A number of close races in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma are being decided right now.

Reporter Chris Warner visited the Saint Paul's Church in Joplin. He says the line, still as of 6:00 p.m., continued to grow as many got off work. Officials say if you are inside and in line before polls close at 7:00 p.m., you'll still get to vote. Hover, if you arrive after 7:00 p.m., the doors will be closed.

Election officials at Saint Paul's Church says they're planning on quite a long night. They say as of 6:00 p.m., they've seen just shy of 1,500 people cast their ballots at this location.

Reporter Lisa Olliges visited the Church of Christ on Centennial in Pittsburg. Election workers there say lives have been steady all day. They say turnout is more than double what they normally see. Some voters she spoke with said civic duty and the entire ballot drove them to the polls.

In Oklahoma, election workers saw a much larger turnout than in the last midterms.

CBS News will begin election coverage at 7:00 p.m. CST. We will break in throughout the evening.
