Federal Elections in the United States of America, Part I
by Manuel Álvarez-Rivera
   

The United States of America held congressional elections on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, to fill all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of 100 seats in the Senate. The mid-term election will be the first nationwide vote since 2016, when Donald J. Trump, the Republican Party candidate, prevailed in the Electoral College (but not in the popular vote) over his Democratic Party challenger, former First Lady, U.S. Senator from New York and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Electoral Panorama has federal and state-level results for the 2012, 2014 and 2016 and 2018 U.S. House of Representatives elections. Nationwide and state-level results are available here for the following general elections:
