This resource is a followup to my Senate Tossup Guide.
The U.S. House of Representatives consists of 238 Republicans, 197 Democrats, and 6 vacant seats. The House, among other things, has the power to initiate bills and impeach an official.
I’ve listed women of color first, followed by white women, and just to be detail complete, included a less detailed list of male democrats in tossup districts at the very end. If you’re interested in supporting more women of color in states marked safe for Democrats or in non-Congressional races, I recommend resources such as Black Women in Politics.
How You Can Help
Financial donations, campaign volunteering, and social media support are your main options.
I recommend choosing one or two that appeal to you. Donate $5 or more at their website, volunteer to make some phone calls, or remind your friends in those states to vote for them. Every little bit helps. Your voice is important.
Example: KS-03 Yoder | Tossup (R)
KS (Kansas) // 03 (District 3) // Yoder (The current holder of the seat who holds an incumbent advantage — OPEN means the current person in power is not seeking reelection) // Tossup (Polling as of this writing, Sept 15 2018) // R (Which way the district usually leans, despite tossups).
