This year is just for all the other offices other then the presidential one. Mid term election because its in between the 4 year election of president.<br />
Edit: Dang you pow3rtr1p , you beat me to it.
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.
