The people elect both the members of the House of Representatives and the United States Senate by direct ballot.

Representatives are elected by Congressional district and serve for two-year terms.

Senators are elected state wide and serve six-year terms.

(Until the passage of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, Senators were selected by the state legislatures.)
