 Americans cast ballots on Tuesday in midterm elections that will determine whether President Joe Biden’s Democrats keep control of the U.S. Senate, as 35 of its 100 seats are up for grabs.

The chamber is divided 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, with Vice President Kamala Harris able to cast tie-breaking votes for the Democrats, so Republicans need to pick up only one seat to take the majority.

The following table shows the projected winner of each race as forecast by media outlets and data provider Edison Research, as well as the change in the balance of power within the chamber based on each group’s projections.

As of 8:12 p.m. ET (0112 GMT, Nov. 9)
