This page is kept up as a source for historical and archival information. The 2022 Mid-Term Election is the next nationally meaningful election.
A runoff election is when no candidate gets the majority of the votes during the regular election*
There were 35 seats up for election in the US Senate in 2020. With Joe Biden as the projected winner of the presidential race, Democrats needed a net gain of three seats to win control. So far, Democrats have netted one seat. Georgia will hold two runoffs on January 5 that will decide if Democrats gain two more seats for a 50-50 split and would mean control of the Senate.** This is because in the event of a tie, the Vice-President votes to break the tie and it can be assumed that Vice-President Elect, Kamala Harris will typically side with the Democrats. Currently, the Republicans have control of the Senate. Should the Democrats win both Senate seats, they will control the legislative and executive branches of government.
