Staff writer Kaylie Ritter shares the importance of voting in the article above. Every vote counts so don't forget to vote at the Midterm Elections on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

As many may know, November 6, this coming Tuesday is National Election Day.

This Midterm Election is a critical one for President Trump. This last year the Republicans held on to the Senate by less than five seats. However, at the election on Tuesday, 35 of the 100 Senate seats will be up for grabs.

Out of the 35 seats open, 26 are Democrats, including the 2 independent parties allied to them, and 9 are Republicans. In the House of Representatives, all 435 seats are now open.

A Democratic win in either the House or Senate would give the party power to open investigations into various aspects of his administration.

Democrats are said to need a net gain of 23 seats to take control of the House, and only 2 seats to take majority in the Senate.

If the Democratic Party takes control of the House or Senate, they could possibly curtail Trump’s political power in Washington.

Now is the time to vote and be heard.

“Voting is the great equalizer,” history teacher Mrs. Powers said. “It gives us an opportunity to have a hand in our government and to be heard.”
