The Democratic Party has won control of the House of Representatives in the US mid-term elections, according to projections from ABC news.
The Democrats needed to pick up 15 net seats to wrest power from the Republicans, who have controlled the House for the past 12 years.
The Democrats have also won three of six target Senate seats - but several key races remain too close to call. Most polls have now closed across the US, with high turnout reported.
Although not confirmed yet it appears that Democrats have gotten the charge.
