Everything you need to know to vote in the 2022 midterm elections
Why it matters: Democrats control the House of Representatives by a thin margin and the Senate by the barest of votes — 50-50 with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker.
Details: If Democrats retain control, it will defy historical trends and conventional wisdom and give them a lifeline to execute stalled portions of their agenda and improve prospects for a second White House term.
- If Republicans retake just one chamber, they can block President Biden’s agenda for the remainder of his term and launch investigations into his administration and his family.
- If they win the Senate as well as the House, they can pass their own legislation, block any Biden Supreme Court nominee should the situation arise again, blunt any significant congressional inquiries into former President Trump, and lay the groundwork for a potential GOP administration in 2024.
