Ahead of the midterm elections, NPR reporters, correspondents and hosts are heading out around the country to report on issues that are energizing voters:
  • Beginning Sept. 24, NPR political reporters take a look at female candidates and female voters in a continuation of the series "She Votes."
  • Morning Edition's David Greene will look back on some of the most contentious issues of the last two years and visit places that represent those controversies -- from Houston to Dearborn, Michigan.
  • And throughout October, the Politics team examines "The Stakes" in the 2018 midterms, examining the policies and politics riding on this election.

If you miss any particular series, find all our coverage, state and national, under one category:
