Most of the attention of midterm elections is focused on the two chambers of Congress: the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. Members of the House are elected for two-year terms, so all 435 seats are decided during the midterm elections.

Senators are elected to staggered six-year terms. A third of the 100 seats are up for grabs in any midterm election.

No matter what you believe or whom you support, it is important to exercise your rights. Every vote counts.
