2022 Congressional Primaries are About to Begin
Congressional Primary Elections are coming up in all states. You have the opportunity to choose your candidates for the next General Election. A full third, 34 seats, of the U.S. Senate and all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives will be up for re-election.
Voting Guidelines for the 2022 Midterm Elections
Check Your Primary Election Dates and Deadlines
Remember - ours is a system of checks and balances. The power in our country is shared between three branches of government - executive, judicial and legislative.
Many members of the federal level legislative branch, Congress, are up for reelection this year. Congress has tremendous power to act as a check in the balance to the other branches of government. As the legislative branch, Congress makes laws and maintains oversight of the other branches of government.
The balance of power in the legislative branch will decide much of the outcome of the second half of our 46th presidential term. So, Let's Mobilize for the Midterms.
Your voice is your vote - and your vote will be heard
