The midterm elections are here, and voters in four more states are heading to the polls to cast their vote on Tuesday for whom they'd like to see in local, congressional and state leadership positions.

Over the past few weeks, voters in various parts of the country have been met with all kinds of weather at the polls – extreme heat, sunshine and even severe weather.
