2014 Election Day {Details} Governors, Congressmen & Senators. Your Vote is Important !!

Published On November 4, 2014 | By admin | Local & Worldwide News

Good morning and welcome to Election Day, 2014! If you have already voted, good for you; if not, go do it! I’ll start of this morning’s final countdown post by saying how much fun it has been watching all the polls and calculating all the projections.

Election Day occurs only in even-numbered years. Presidential elections are held every four years, in years divisible by four, in which electors for President and Vice President are chosen according to the method determined by each state. Elections to the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate are held every two years; all Representatives serve two-year terms and are up for election every two years, while Senators serve six-year terms, staggered so that one-third of Senators are elected in any given general election. General elections in which presidential candidates are not on the ballot are referred to as midterm elections.

Midterm elections are when we choose governors, congressmen, and senators. Governors are like the CEOs of states. And congressmen and senators literally lay down the law — they decide which bills pass and which don’t. So yes, important. Vote.

Important Issues:

Economy…as in the numbers have gone from worse to less-worse, but the economy still isn’t great. And it’s the issue where neither party is safe.

Immigration…as in it’s always an issue where there could be a better fix. But after a flood of unaccompanied immigrant children crossed the US border this year, it came to a boiling point. President Obama took a cool down lap and tabled the issue for now. But it’s still a big talking point — especially for Hispanic voters.

Social Issues…as in women and gay marriage. Women’s issues (think: equal pay, birth control) might be the X (chromosome) factor Dems need to hold onto the Senate.

Foreign Policy…as in President Obama recently looked up ‘obvious’ in the dictionary and admitted that the US “underestimated” ISIS. Now, the GOP’s leading the ‘told you so’ chorus, and tying his policies to their Democratic opponents.

President Obama…as in HealthCare.gov’s IT department is more popular than him right now. And the GOP is doing it’s best to make that bad image rub off on every Dem across the country
