Front pages from local newspapers around the country led election day coverage on front pages with words including "wave," "decision" and "divided." But a good number used the front to simply remind people to vote, how to vote and where to find results.
USA Today Network newsrooms including The Des Moines (Iowa) Register, the (Lafayette, Indiana) Journal & Courier and The (Clarksville, Tennessee) Leaf-Chronicle used the space to remind people how to find polls and to bring ID with them.
The (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) Patriot-News shared FAQs including "Can I take a selfie while voting?"
And the Chicago Sun-Times kept it simple: "Exercise your right. Vote."
