The midterm elections refer to general elections in the United States that are held two years after the quadrennial (four-year) elections for the President of the United States (i.e. near the midpoint of the four-year presidential term). Federal offices that are up for election during the midterms are members of the United States Congress, including all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives, and the full terms for 33 or 34 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate.
This year, people in Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia will in addition to voting for their favorite representative, be able to vote to legalize marijuana in these so-called ballot initiatives. While in Florida, people will be able to vote to legalize the medicinal use.
The elections are scheduled for Tuesday, November 4, 2014.
Which is why we brought this page to life: to raise awareness of the upcoming elections and to encourage people to go out and vote in the 2014 Marijuana Ballot Initiatives!
