The 2022 midterms are approaching on Nov. 8, when voters in the US will decide the makeup of Congress, determine who will hold key positions in their states and cities, and weigh policy directly through voting.

Democrats currently have a slim majority in both chambers, and because the same party has the White House, the conditions are ideal for them to pass bills that President Joe Biden will sign. But predictions suggest Democrats are likely to lose control of the House and retain the Senate this fall — though many key races are so close that anything is possible.

Outside of Washington, governors, secretaries of state, and attorneys general, along with members of the legislature, run for election in dozens of states. The winners of those competitions will influence state policy on issues as diverse as abortion, voting rights and Covid-19.
