When were a Congressional election and a Presidential election held at the same time?

There is always a congressional election held at the same time as the presidential election. However, since Congressmen serve for only a two-year term and the president serves for four years, there is a another Congressional election in the middle of the president's term. ( I am talking about the lower house of Congress. The senate elects one-third of its members every two years, so one-third of the senators are also elected at the same time as the President. )

Who decides when and where and how-election for Congresses held?

Regular elections are mandated by the US Constitution. Every even-numbered year, all the representatives in House are voted on. Senate terms are six years, so only one-third are elected each even-numbered year. The class of each senator is determined at statehood. If a senator resigns or dies, the governor of his state appoints a replacement who holds office until a special election is held or until the next national election day. Absent House members are not replaced until the next national election. National elections are held on the first Tuesday in November unless November 1 is a Tuesday, in which case the election is postponed until the second Tuesday.
