What are mid-term elections?
The phrase “mid-term election” refers to elections near the middle point of a president’s four-year term. The focus is on the US Senate and House of Representatives during a mid-term election.
House of Representatives
Members of the House are elected for two-year terms. All 435 seats are decided during mid-term elections.
Senators are elected in staggered six-year terms. This year 2022, 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate are on the ballot.
There are no “term limits” for members of the House who can be continuously re-elected indefinitely. The office of the President, the nation’s highest elected office is limited to two four-year terms.
For example, Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) served from 1959 - 2010, a total of 51 years, 5 months, and 26 days as a US Senator, and John David Dingell, Jr (D-MI) served from 1955 - 2015, over 59 years as a member of the House of Representatives.
Today, 13 active members in Congress have over 40 years of service in either the House, Senate, or both.
- Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) — 47 years
- Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) — 47 years*
- Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) — 45 years*
