The 2018 United States elections will mostly be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. These midterm elections will take place in the middle of Republican President Donald Trump's term. All 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested. 39 state and territorial governorships and numerous other state and local elections will also be contested.

Federal elections[edit]

Congressional elections[edit]

Senate elections[edit]

All seats in Senate Class I will be up for election. Additionally, special elections may be held to fill vacancies in the other two Senate Classes.

House of Representatives elections[edit]

All 435 voting seats in the United States House of Representatives will be up for election. Additionally, elections will be held to select the Delegate for the District of Columbia as well as the delegates from U.S. territories, with the exception of the Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico, who serves a four-year term.

State elections[edit]

The 2018 state elections will impact the redistricting that will follow the 2020 United States Census, as many states task governors and state legislators with drawing new boundaries for state legislative and Congressional districts.

Gubernatorial elections[edit]

Elections will be held for the governorships of thirty six of the fifty U.S. states and two U.S. territories. Special elections may be held for vacancies in the other states and territories, if required by their state/territorial constitutions.

Legislative elections[edit]

Most states will hold state legislative elections, although Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Virginia do not hold legislative elections in even years. Kansas, Minnesota, New Mexico, and South Carolina will only hold elections for the lower house. In states that use staggered terms, some state senators will not be up for election.

Table of state, territorial, and federal results[edit]

This table shows the partisan results of Congressional, gubernatorial, presidential, and state legislative races held in each state and territory in 2018. Note that not all states and territories hold gubernatorial, state legislative, and United States Senate elections in 2016; additionally, the territories do not have electoral votes in American presidential elections, and neither Washington, D.C. nor the territories elect members of the United States Senate. Washington, D.C. and the five inhabited territories each elect one non-voting member of the United States House of Representatives. Nebraska's unicameral legislature and the governorship and legislature of American Samoa are officially non-partisan. In the table, offices/legislatures that are not up for election in 2018 are already filled in for the "after 2018 elections" section, although vacancies or party switching could potentially lead to a flip in partisan control. New Jersey and Virginia will hold gubernatorial and legislative elections in 2017.
