    FAQ: Electon's Over... When Can I Expect Congress to Update in Engage?

    In This Article:

      After an election, the outgoing Congress still has to close out business. Your old Representatives remain in place until the end of the session. State legislators, if any are still in session, will finish out their terms until the newly elected officials are sworn in.

      The US Congress is always sworn in on January 3 of the following year. State legislators will be sworn in according to each individual legislature’s calendar, usually when the session starts.  After the swearing in, it may take a few days for the new legislators to get their offices set up, have their websites built, hire office staff, and even get phone lines in place. 

      There may be a delay in receiving verified contact information, zip code and district mapping updates, or other information about a legislator that has been sworn-in because the legislator hasn’t confirmed their information for public use. If a legislator falls into this category, they may not be available until that data is verified and provided to us. That update may not come until the following week for later.
