(CBSDFW.COM) – The General Election will take place on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

This November, Americans have the opportunity to make history – if 50% of voters vote in this midterm election, it’d be the highest midterm turnout in a century. And, each vote counts – with 435 House and 35 Senate seats, most Governors and hundreds of Mayors and local officials up for election, it’s projected that this midterm election will influence our nation on a national, state and local level through 2030 and beyond.
