Composition of the US Congress

The US Congress currently has 535 voting members – 435 Representatives and 100 Senators – representing some 330 million people in the 50 states of the United States. The 435 Representatives are elected directly by voters on the basis of individual, single-member districts, and serve a two-year term. Each of the 50 states has two Senators, who sit for a six-year term. Elections are held, on a rolling basis, for one third of the 100 Senate seats every two years.
