U.S. Midterm elections are set to take place on Tuesday, 8 November, with many states opting for mail-in ballots and/or early in-person voting. All 435 House seats and 35 of the 100 Senate seats are on the ballot. Additionally 36 out of 50 states will elect governors.
This election is highly contentious and carries with it the potential for violence. Major US cities across the U.S. with other worldwide locations may experience election-relation unrest before, during, and after the elections. Isolated incidents to extended periods of mass gatherings and protests are possible, as well as violent confrontations between counter-groups and widespread property damage.
Travelers should avoid large gatherings and additional travel in the evening hours, when violence and crime tend to escalate.
