2018 U.S. Midterm Elections（2018年美国中期选举）
Join us in the American Center for a presentation and discussion of midterm elections in the United States! It is well known that Americans choose a president every four years. Less well known is that just two years after a president takes office, another vote takes place in which Americans elect 435 representatives and at least 33 senators. This midterm election is crucial because it determines the balance of power in Congress and affects the president's ability to implement their policy agenda. Please join us to discuss and ask questions about this important event for American democracy! This event is part of a series on the midterm elections. The other events will be a preview on the evening of October 11 and a look at the results on the evening of November 8.
