The fate of the U.S. Senate will be determined in Georgia on Tuesday as two massive races will decide which party holds the majority — and there’s plenty of ways to keep track of it all.

What’s happening:

Georgia voters head to the polls Tuesday to determine the outcome of two elections.

  • Democrat Jon Ossoff is currently running against Republican David Perdue, whose Senate term expired Sunday with the start of the new session of Congress.
  • Democrat Raphael Warnock looks to unset GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, too.

The state of play:

The results will determine whether or not the Senate will remain controlled by the Republican Party or Democrats.

Times to watch:

  • Polls opened at 7 a.m. EST.
  • Polls will close at 7 p.m. EST.
  • However, voters who are in line as of 7 p.m. can still cast a ballot, NBC News reports.
  • Three million people have already cast ballots during the early voting period that began on Dec. 14.

Where to watch:

  • All major networks will have coverage of these races.
  • Major media networks like CNN, Fox News, Fox Business, MSNBC and Noticias Telemundo will have extended coverage.

How to stream:

The following outlets will have streaming options, too. Some of them require trial sign-ups.
