2018 is largely about control over the direction of the country via elections. To give you a sense of the scope and scale, let’s look at the numbers:

  • 6,066 = State legislative seats up

  • 38 = Special State legislative elections

  • 36 = Gubernatorial elections

  • 435 = U.S. House of Representatives seats up

  • 3 = Special House elections

  • 33 = U.S. Senate elections

This totals out to 6,611 State and Federal elections this year – and doesn’t even include the many elections and appointments for other positions at the local, State, and Federal levels which will be largely influential in shaping worker health and safety policies. ​
