While it's all but confirmed that the Democrats have taken back the House, and Republicans will retain control of the Senate, election night is far from over. And Americans are celebrating historic wins in States from Colorado and Kansas to New Mexico and New York.
Read on for all of 2018's electoral "firsts."
For the first time in US history, it's been projected that more than 100 women have been elected to the House of Representatives.
Currently, there are 84 women serving in the House (61 Democrats and 23 Republicans), and according to the Washington Post, "women have never held more than 20 percent, or 107, of the 535 seats in Congress, the current number."

Colorado's Jared Polis just became the first openly gay man to be elected governor.
At 29, Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. She will represent New York's 14th District, which covers parts of the Bronx and Queens.
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar
Tlaib and Omar will become the first Muslim women in Congress representing districts in Michigan and Minnesota, respectively.
Tonight, Pressley was elected Massachusetts's first-ever black congresswoman. She will represent the seventh district, which covers parts of Boston and some of the city's suburbs.
Deb Haaland and Sharice Davids
Haaland and Davids are the first Native American women elected to Congress. Haaland, who is a member of the Pueblo of Laguna, will represent New Mexico's first congressional district in the House, and Davids, who is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, defeated incumbent Kevin Yoder to represent the third congressional district of Kansas. Davids is also the first openly gay women elected to Congress from the state.
This one's a little unusual. Romney, who was just elected Senator of Utah is reportedly the first politician to serve as governor in one state and then senator of another one in over 150 years. The last politician to do so? Sam Houston, who served as the governor of Tennessee and then a senator in Texas in the mid-1800s.
Blackburn defeated Democrat Phil Bredesen to become elected as Tennessee's first female senator.
