Each hold a six-year term, during which time they serve as the voice of the people. They introduce and amend bills, except for those related to raising revenue. Senator Reid will be up for reelection in 2016 and Senator Heller in 2018.
In the House of Representatives, Dina Titus leads the 1st Congressional District, while Mark Amodei, Joseph Heck, and Cresent Hardy oversee, in order, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th districts. Each territory contains 710,000 citizens, with one congressional member representing his or her district for a two-year term. Additionally, each representative has an equal part in electing the president if the Electoral College is unable to do so. Representatives also play a major role in the impeachment process and have the right to present and amend bills.
