It's time for the midterms again, and experts say these elections could be the most consequential in years. Whoever is elected to these positions could affect the outcome of the 2024 presidential election. On top of that, issues like rapid inflation, abortion rights, and health care are on ballots across the country.

Congressional seats, governorships, attorney general, and other positions are also up for grabs. The competition is fierce, especially with hundreds of Black leaders vying for a position in federal or state office. Some of these candidates and politicians could make history on election night.

Without further ado, here are all the Black candidates running for office or re-election.
