All 435 U.S. House of Representative seats are on the ballot for November’s general elections. While Republicans currently hold a majority in the chamber, Democrats need a net gain of just four seats to take control. Inside Elections rates 10 races as toss-ups and 18 more either tilt Democratic or Republican, so the balance of power in the House could go either way.

A Gallup poll published in March found the 118th Congress with just a 15 percent approval rating. With a close race expected, organizations should be prepared for any outcome and have strategies in place for pre- and post-election scenarios.
