The times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature, but the congress may at any time by law make or alter such regulations.
The State Legislature
house of representatives and senate-kaylin
A General Election in NZ is normally held every 3 years, unless the Government decides to call an snap election. They may do this due to a lake of support within the house or because cabinet is split and other reasons which relate to political de stability.
The Speaker of the House is an elected representative. Each party nominates a candidate for Speaker at the beginning of a new session of Congress and the election is held the first day with a roll call vote.?æ
Congress does not have a President. It has a speaker of the house in the house and that job is currently held by John Boehner. The senate has the senate majority leader and that job is currently held by Harry Reid.
Whenever a seat in the U.S. Senate or House of Representatives is vacated due to death, resignation or removal, the State Governor issues a Writ of Election, and a special election is held to fill the seat for the remainder of the term. The special election can coincide with a regular congressional election. In the case of a vacated Senate seat, the Governor can appoint someone to temporarily fill the seat until an election can be held if the state legislature grants him that power.
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. )
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.
