It's Election Day, and FOX News Radio's team coverage shares what's at stake.

From America's Election Headquarters. 

I'm Rachel Sutherland in Washington. Six is the magic number for Republicans in their quest to take control of the U.S. Senate, and whether they do comes down to razor-thin races in battleground states. Our FOX News Radio reporters are on the trail.

I'm Jared Halpern in Louisville. Democrat Alison Grimes is trying to play spoiler in Kentucky. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is eyeing not just re-election, but enough GOP wins to become majority leader.

I'm Jessica Rosenthal in Anchorage, Alaska where Republicans think they have a shot at unseating the Democratic incumbent Senator Mark Begich. In the past few days, party heavy weights like Mitt Romney and Texas Senator Ted Cruz campaigned here for the Republican Dan Sullivan.

I'm Jeff Monosso in Iowa, where after a bitter fight, the battle for control of the U.S. Senate could rest in the hands of Democrat Bruce Braley, or Republican Joni Ernst --who if elected, becomes Iowa's first ever female Senator, and turns a blue Senate seat -- red -- for the first time in almost 30 years.

I'm Eben Brown in New Orleans, where three-term incumbent Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu might have to wait until a future date to learn if she'll head back to D.C. and keep her party in power in the Senate -- as a three-way race here is very likely headed for a run-off election.

I'm Rich Johnson in Denver, where Colorado Republicans are feeling very good about Cory Gardner's chances of beating incumbent Democrat Mark Udall and putting the GOP one more seat closer to a Senate majority.

This is Hank Weinbloom. Voters in 36 states will elect governors with more than a dozen races considered very close.  The issues vary, but in the end could signal the mood of voters in advance of the 2016 presidential election.

I'm Kirstin McNary, in New York. Over 140 ballot measures are up for vote across the country, on controversial topics including abortion, gun control, marijuana and the minimum wage.

I'm Bill Marcus in Manchester, New Hampshire, where former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown is trying to make a come-back, by beating the only woman in America ever to be both a Governor and a Senator, Jeanne Shaheen.

This is Chad Pergram on Capitol Hill. Conventional wisdom holds that the President's party loses nearly 30 seats on average in the second midterm election. It's called the six year itch. House Republicans are expected to win seats this year, but come nowhere near 30. 

-----------

The polls start closing at 7 p.m. Eastern Time and FOX News Radio will have complete coverage of all the returns.

In Washington, Rachel Sutherland, FOX News Radio.
