To gain control of the House of Representatives during tomorrow’s midterm elections,  Democrats must win a minimum of 23 Republican-held seats. It’s an ambitious goal, but more and more polls suggest they’ll achieve it.

The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election tracker, has outlined 46 extremely competitive races where the outcome is either uncertain or may result in a Democratic gain that could swing the whole House.

Check the list below to see if you’re voting in one of them. (You can use Ctrl + F to jump ahead to your state.) If you’re not sure what your district is, this tool from the House of Representatives matches your ZIP code and address to your congressional district.
