One of my favorite sayings is, "There's always another election around the corner...". Indeed, here we are in another election year and it's time to get going. Midterm Mobilization is underway at U.S. Vote Foundation and Overseas Vote.
Congressional Primary Elections are coming up in all states. You have the opportunity to choose your congressional 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.
Our government 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 on 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.
Your voice is your vote - and your vote will be heard!
