House of Representatives
House of Representatives
435 Voting Members
Elected Every TWo Years
- Two Senators per state, regardless of the size of the state.

- Elections are every six years, and staggered so both Senators are not elected at the same time.
Good idea!
100 senators, two from each state

Elected every six years, but staggered so
two senators from the same state are not elected in the same year.

You have ONE representative and TWO senators.
