Hi, I'm Charlie Mahtesian, NPR's Politics editor. AMA about the midterm elections.
EDIT Hey there, gotta go. Sorry if I didn't get a chance to answer your question; the time flew by. I still need to vote and then attend several election night prep meetings before the results start coming in...Make sure to check out our Election Night coverage here [http://elections.npr.org/]; we'll be on the air from 8 pm to 1 am. I'll also be tweeting at http://www.twitter.com/charlieNPR. Thanks again.
I joined NPR in May 2013 after serving 5 years as POLITICO’s national politics editor. Prior to that I covered state legislatures and urban politics for Governing magazine, elections at Congressional Quarterly and also edited three editions of The Almanac of American Politics, the political junkie’s bible. I had a brief stint as a lawyer but was bored to tears and quickly returned to journalism. Here's a piece I wrote this morning about some key places to watch today [http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2014/11/04/361378127/7-places-to-watch-on-election-day] My proof: [https://twitter.com/charlieNPR/status/529691839541280768]
