President Obama needs moms to go back to college. He has created an economic stimulus package that has money bursting at the seams. For it to work, the money has to be put to use, especially money designated for specific areas. One of these areas is to get single moms back to college. Most mothers would never consider going back to school. There is quite a bit of commitment. Taking classes usually requires you to leave your home and family for periods of time. You would have to find someone to watch your children, and then do all of the work involved with obtaining a degree. However, with online classes becoming a standard in today's college system, it is possible now for anyone, including the single mom, to go back to school in the comfort of their home. Imagine finally achieving the degree of your dreams on your schedule and not missing a beat with your family responsibilities. 5500. Getting access to this is need based and if you are single mom on a limited income, your need is already there to help qualify you for your new direction in life. Take that first bold step forward and make an educational move that can change your life for the better right now. You can truly change everything once you have a degree that will qualify you for the job or career that you have always wanted. It's easy. President Obama needs single moms to make his stimulus package work. Check it out today.

By the early years of the 20th century, the legislatures of as many as 29 states had provided for popular election of senators by referendums. Popular election to the Senate was standardized nationally in 1913 by the ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment. Senators serve terms of six years each; the terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the seats are up for election every two years. The Constitution set the date for Congress to convene — Article 1, Section 4, Clause 2, originally set that date for the third day of December. The Twentieth Amendment, however, changed the opening date for sessions to noon on the third day of January, unless they shall by law appoint a different day. The Twentieth Amendment also states that Congress shall assemble at least once in every year and allows Congress to determine its convening and adjournment dates and other dates and schedules as it desires.

Article 1, Section 3, provides that the president has the power to convene Congress on extraordinary occasions at his discretion. A member who has been elected, but not yet seated, is called a senator-elect; a member who has been appointed to a seat, but not yet seated, is called a senator-designate. Elections to the Senate are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November in even-numbered years, Election Day, and coincide with elections for the House of Representatives. Senators are elected by their state as a whole. The Elections Clause of the United States Constitution grants each state (and Congress, if it so desires to implement a uniform law) the power to legislate a method by which senators are elected. Ballot access rules for independent and minor party candidates also vary from state to state. In 45 states, a primary election is held first for the Republican and Democratic parties (and a select few third parties, depending on the state) with the general election following a few months later.

In most of these states, the nominee may receive only a plurality, while in some states, a runoff is required if no majority was achieved. In the general election, the winner is the candidate who receives a plurality of the popular vote. However, in 5 states, different methods are used. In Georgia, a runoff between the top two candidates occurs if the plurality winner in the general election does not also win a majority. The Seventeenth Amendment requires that mid-term vacancies in the Senate be filled by special election. Whenever a senator must be appointed or elected, the secretary of the Senate mails one of three forms to the state's governor to inform them of the proper wording to certify the appointment of a new senator. If a special election for one seat happens to coincide with a general election for the state's other seat, each seat is contested separately. A senator elected in a special election takes office as soon as possible after the election and serves until the original six-year term expires (i.e. not for a full term). The manner by which the Seventeenth Amendment is enacted varies among the states.
