Votes cast in yesterday's nationwide midterm elections are still being tallied, and results in many key races have not yet been certified. But one thing's for sure: The midterms most certainly were unusual, with President Donald Trump casting himself as strategist-in-chief of a no-holds-barred battle to utterly destroy the Democrats and usher in the era of the one-party state.

It appears that will not happen. Democrats are on track to win the House, and though Republicans might hold on to the Senate, they will be within striking distance in 2020.

Midterm elections are just five days away. Candidates are making last-ditch efforts to woo voters; media outlets are making predictions about who'll win and who'll lose; voters are making up their minds about who'll get their support; and others aren't at all interested in participating in a superhyped circus.

We round out yesterday's discussion on our attitudes about voting. Or not.

What shapes our attitudes about voting? Why do we, or don't we, vote? Should voting be mandatory? Do we vote with our heads or our hearts?

In the home stretch of the Nov. 6 midterm elections, Leid Stories listeners get personal about voting--or not.
