Why should I care?

The November 2018 election is a mid-term election in the United States because it occurs midway between two presidential elections. In November, voters across the country will choose every member of the U.S. House of Representatives (435 members), one-third of U.S. Senators (34 out of 100 members), more than two-thirds of state governors (36 out of 50), and a majority of state legislators (more than 6,000 nationwide). There are also numerous elections for state, county, and local positions.

Each election helps determine the next in line to manage our governmental institutions, and should, therefore, be of great interest to all citizens.
