NOW :

News headlines are heralding Democratic Congressional victories on Election Night, but the larger story of the 2006 mid-term elections transcends statistical winners and losers. Since late summer, NOW has been focusing on crucial but underreported personal and political questions related to the election, such as: the performance of malfunctioning voting machines, the outcomes of deceptive ballot initiatives, the influence of religion in politics, the impact of immigration and minimum wage issues, the political role of the blogosphere, and the success rate of "clean" campaigners. Tonight, NOW takes a hard look at the outcomes of these issues, as well as the individual people profoundly affected by them.

Also, NOW's David Brancaccio and Salon.com editor-in-chief Joan Walsh place a magnifying glass on mid-term election outcomes to reveal what it means for America's future.

Starting this Friday, the NOW website will track these outcomes, as well as others not included in the broadcast, and link to their original NOW investigations.
