NOTE: There are 31 members of the Senate with the ideal senate district population of 811,147. Senators serve a four year term. However, after redistricting (2022 most recent), the state constitution requires senators to draw lots to determine which half of the chamber will have four-year terms and which will have two-year terms. This keeps Senate district elections staggered every two years for the rest of the decade. Term of Office. Next election: Nov 5, 2024
