Teaching A really simple guide to the US mid-terms

A really simple guide to the US mid-terms

Two years after Donald Trump was elected, American voters take to the polls again on 6 November for the mid-term elections. These elections happen every four years in November – so-called because they take place in the middle of the president’s four-year term of office. This time they’re choosing new members of Congress, but how they vote could affect how the rest of Mr Trump’s presidency turns out.
