2022 Elections

AllSides is providing balanced 2022 midterm election news and nationwide coverage of media bias on the key races to watch across the country.

In the 2022 midterm elections, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be contested. Thirty-six states and three territories will hold gubernatorial (governor’s) elections, and many other local elections will also be contested.

Notably, this will be the first election involving the post-2020 U.S. Census redistricting. Democrats currently hold a 222-212 majority over Republicans in the House, and the Senate consists of 50 Republicans, 48 Democrats, and two Independents who both caucus with the Democrats. In the case of a 50-50 tie in the Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris would serve as the tiebreaker.
