    Welcome to EL&U. Capitalization of titles is largely a matter of style; see Understanding U.S. President capitalization and Should “Project Manager” be capitalized? for example. – choster Aug 15 '16 at 15:05
  • I disagree that the linked question is a duplicate. If it is truly an issue of style, then this question provides utility to the community by simply opening a space in which specific examples of stylistic choices (such as the one below) can be shown. Someone with the same question led here by a google search will not be helped by the linked question. – 0112 Oct 26 '18 at 23:26

A quick look at wikipedia reveals the answer: No.


"Senate" and "House of Representatives" are capitalized but the roles themselves are not, eg: "Both senators and representatives are chosen through direct election"
