Right now: Democrats retained their control of the House of Representatives as expected, US networks reported, slightly expanding their majority in the 435-seat chamber.

What happens next: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was expected to increase her party's majority by at least four or five seats in the election, Fox News and NBC News reported.

What to expect: With results in the key swing states still outstanding and President Donald Trump like to win in must-win Florida, the presidential election looks to be a close race.
