The polls are now open in Georgia, where voters will have a say in the balance of power in Congress in two U.S. Senate races. The races are expected to be close as Biden won the state by fewer than 12,000 votes.

One contest pits incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff and the other race features incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler against Democrat Raphael Warnock. And the results will put one party or the other in charge of the legislative agenda.
