There are a total of 435 representatives in the House. Each member represents an area of the state, known as a congressional district.

Senators belong to the legislative branch of the government, which is the part of the government that makes laws. A senator's job is to represent the people living in his or her state in the United States Senate. Part of this job is to write and vote on new laws called “bills.”
