For the moment, yes. But there's a group of Republicans who are trying to change the law and return the election of Senators to the State Houses instead of election by popular vote.

Best Answer

No, they are elected by the popular vote of the citizens of the states. This is a movement to return to the old way (prior to around 1915 I think) in which there is no popular vote for Senator, the party in the majority of the State House simply handpicks a party faithful and elects him/her Senator without any kind of voting by the people. Read your history and civics.

Best Answer

yes. all of the house of representatives, 435 of them. And about 1/3 of the 100 senators. But since these are more local things they do not get much news coverage. I think most people just vote for whatever political party they think they agree with, without knowing anything about who they are voting for.

Best Answer

I used to vote for people I knew nothing about. Not anymore. I vote for who I like and against those I don't. Races that I know neither candidate, I don't vote.

Unfortunately we presently have a president that is showing an penchant for ignoring due process and overriding congress with presidential decrees ( executive orders ). I fear where this will lead if he is re elected.
