Some Americans are expressing frustration with government as they go to the polls today, though there's some hope mixed in with the voices of cynicism.

A voter in Denver who calls himself a radical moderate says he worries whether ordinary people are being heard anymore. He says it seems "the majority is counted not in people but in dollars."

A man casting a ballot in Kentucky says he'd like to see a smaller government that will "listen to the people" and "let the people decide."

Control of the U.S. Senate is in play, with Republicans needing to gain six seats to move into the majority. The large number of competitive races and the possibility of runoffs in Louisiana and Georgia mean that neither party might be able to claim victory by tomorrow.
