CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) – President Trump and former President Obama have traveled all over the country the last couple of weeks campaigning for candidates.

This is the first nation-wide election since Trump took office in January 2016.

By Halloween, the number of early and absentee votes surpassed the total number of early and absentee votes in any previous midterm election.

Some voters are saying that this is the most important election of our lifetime.

Election day could produce a record number of women, African Americans, Latinos, LGBTQ and veteran elected officials in 2019.

Local candidates, Joe Cunningham (D) and Katie Arrington (R) will be traveling around the Lowcountry today for their final rallies.
