1. Voters have been casting ballots1 all day at polling places across the nation. At sunrise from Crawford Texas, President Bush urged all Americans to make their voices heard. At stake in Tuesday's midterm election are all 435 House seats, 33 seats in the Senate and 36 races for governor. With many Americans frustrated2 over the Iraq war and disappointed with misbehavior in Washington, Republican control of Congress may be on the line.

2. Heavy rains began to subside3 by early Tuesday in Washington State following several days of severe flooding that killed at least one person and stranded4 many others. Mud and rockslides have blocked a number of highways in the Northwest.

3. A London judge sentenced a confessed al-Qaeda operative to life in prison Tuesday for planning to attack landmarks5 in London, Washington and New York. Officials warn this case has proved that terrorism is still a real threat.
