ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The campaigning is done, and now its time for voters to make their decisions.

It's Election Day across the country, and by tonight, we'll know who the next president of the country will be, along with the candidates who'll fill local seats from mayors, to city council and school board members, to state legislators.
