(CNN) — They represent a sliver of the electorate yet could still hold the key to the Oval Office. In a contest that’s already the most expensive in history, we set out to meet the men and women whose choices are so highly prized: the undecided voters. They represent six key groups in the key swing states where their votes matter most:
A millennial in New Hampshire. A Catholic in Ohio. A long-term unemployed man in Nevada. A Latino in Florida. A single woman in Virginia. An evangelical in Iowa.
We introduced you to them through deeply drawn profiles accompanied by photographic portraits, videos and data visualizations that illuminate the nexus between real life and politics — the emotional terrain that determines how these ordinary Americans could decide the election. With less than a day left before the election, we caught up with them to see if they’ve made up their minds — and how they came to their decision. Three told whom they’re voting for, two wouldn’t say and one — well, she’s still undecided.
