2018 Congressional Elections

With so many changes coming out of Washington these days, it’s more important than ever that AMRPA members stay involved in determining their representation in Congress. That’s why AMRPA is happy to announce a new civic engagement series that will provide information regarding upcoming primary elections leading up to the U.S. general election in November. These updates will also be appearing in the AMRPA magazine and our membership e-newsletter Off the Record.

As part of this civic engagement series, AMRPA will be providing members with information on where and when state primaries are taking place, as well as other resources, such as talking points on medical rehabilitation to discuss with candidates. These tools and our collective outreach efforts will help ensure that the medical rehabilitation field remains an important constituency for our elected representatives.

In 2018, 33 seats in the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for election. The states in which Senate seats are up for election are: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. 

The first primaries will begin in March, and continue until November with the general election taking place in most states on November 6, 2018.
