Will every vote count in the crucial US midterm elections?

In the final hours before the US midterm elections, many minorities are concerned about the issue of voter suppression.

From Native Americans in North Dakota to Hispanics in Kansas and black voters in Georgia, they are all fighting Republican-led efforts to limit their votes.

President Donald Trump often pushes the theme of voter fraud during his many rallies, with little evidence to back up his claim.

In Georgia, Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate for governor, who is also the secretary of state, has launched an investigation into the state’s Democrat party.

Kemp accuses the Democrats of trying to hack into the voter registration system, but many have called this a “political stunt”.

So, will the elections be fair and credible?
