Questions about politicians, updated senators, governors etc.

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I had a questionnaire i got around June, and there was an election last month, do i have to update the new senators, governor and my US rep? Or same "before" November elections?

The new Congress takes office at noon on January 3rd, 2015.

So for example, if you live in Alaska, your Senators are:

-Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich on or before January 2nd, 2015

-Lisa Murkowski and Dan Young on or after January 3rd, 2015

The same goes for members of the House of Representatives.

Governors are different (you'll have to check your state's rules). In Texas, the new governor assumes office on January 20th.

So if you live in Texas, your governor is:

-Rick Perry on or before January 19th, 2015

-Greg Abbott on or after January 20th, 2015

Depending on when your interview is, you have to answer the names of your current Senators, Representatives, and Governor.

I wouldn't be surprised if your interviewer showed some flexibility around this time of year, but if I were you, I would learn the old and new names just in case; it's just four more names (assuming everyone changed, which is unlikely).

So since your interview is after the new congress is sworn in, you'll have to learn the names of your new representatives and senators (if they have changed - they may have been reelected). You'll have to find out who they are... a simply Google search should help.

I googled your governor for you: it's Martin O'Malley until January 20th, 2015.

And honestly if you say Martin O'Malley until Jan 20, but Larry Hogan is the incoming - they wouldn't fault you :)

Thanks guys. How bout MD senators? Googled Nov. elections but couldn't find MD new senators

That's because your two senators were last elected in 2010 and 2012. So neither of them was up for reelection in 2014 because they serve six year terms.
