    Every state has two senators elected for staggered six-year terms, with one-third of the Senate seats up for re-election every two years.

  • It's a six year term, with the terms staggered so approximately one-third are up for election every two years. With 100 Senators, that means approximately 33 are up for election every two years. Both Senators from any given state are not up for election in any given year,
