Supplementary notes

Midterm elections in the United States are held every four years on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

*1974, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2010, and 2014 were all wave election years. Wave elections are elections where one political party, usually the one in opposition, makes major gains in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, causing control of the government to flip.
