The Rest of the Ballot
U.S. president and vice president aren’t the only positions up for grabs in the fall. In Congress, 35 Senate seats and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be decided at the polls.
Republicans hold a majority of seats in the Senate. Democrats hold a majority in the House. But this election could shift that balance. That’s a big deal because the majority party holds the top leadership positions in each house and can influence which bills (proposals for new laws) are considered.
In addition, 11 states will elect governors and dozens of cities will pick mayors. Your area may have state and local contests too.
