In the 2022 midterm elections, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate were up for grabs. Thirty-six states and three territories held gubernatorial (governor’s) elections, and many other local elections were also contested.
Republicans retook a majority over Democrats in the House, while the latter maintained their Senate majority.
Notably, this was the first election involving the post-2020 U.S. Census redistricting.
