Midterm elections are governors and senators and stuff, cuz they get elected in the middle of the president's term<br />
<br />
Made that up, but it sounds right...

It's called a mid-term election because it occurs in the middle of a presidential term. Members of the house and senate are elected to 4 and 6 year terms , respectively.OH, and boredom is right.. 4 year terms for president, and the next one will be in 2008,.. which is why you will never see a presidential election in a year that ends in an odd number.
