voice one:

welcome to this is america. i'm steve ember.

voice two:

and i'm faith lapidus. our subject this week is american politics. national elections are one week away.

us capitol, washington dc

(music)

voice one:

the united states holds national elections every two years. this year, election day is tuesday, november seventh. americans will vote in local, state and congressional elections.

voters will choose all four hundred thirty-five members of the house of representatives. voters will also choose thirty-three of the one hundred senators.

each state has two senators and at least one representative -- the number depends on the population of each state. house members serve two-year terms. a senate term is six years.

but these are called midterm elections because they come halfway through the president's term. midterm elections are often seen as a measure of how americans feel about the policies of the president and congress.
