The 2018 midterm election are this Tuesday November 6th. These elections are pretty important because it will set the tone for President Trumps second half of his term.
So far over 30 million people have voted in 48 states through early voting, mail in ballots, and absentee voting. This is up from the 28 million that voted early in 2014.
I have to wait to vote on the 6th because New York State does not have early voting. So if you;re in the same boat as me or have not voting you can use this guide to help you find out where to vote, who is on the balot, and what laws are on the ballot.
So far based on polling it looks like the house is going to go to the Democrats. There is an estimated safe 202 democrat seats and 198 safe Republican seats. There are 37 toss up seats but most pollsters believe that the Democrats will win most of these and take the majority. For most midterms on average 23 are gained by the party opposing the President.
The senate is a bit different though. Right now there are 50 safe Republican seats and 48 safe Democrat seas with 6 tossups. But polling data suggest that the Republicans will gain an extra seat and keep their majority. So that would make it 52-48 in favor of the GOP. Right now the GOP has 51 seats in the Senate.
