    The Legislative Branch has the House of Representatives and the Senate. If you put both of those together you get the United States Congress.
    The House of Representatives has 435 elected members. They are divided into all 50 states according to their population.
    Members of the house are elected every two years and they have to 25 years old. They have to be a US citizen for at least seven years and a resident of the state.

  • 4. The Judicial Branch
    Federal judges can be removed. It can only happen by the formal document charging a public official. Most of the time, the Congress determines the legal power of the federal courts. The Supreme Court is in the Judicial Branch.
