U.S. Senate Seats up for Reelection in 2020

It’s 2020 vision time.

The U.S. Senate elections will be held on November 3, 2020. Thirty-four of the 100 Senate seats are up for reelection.

The GOP will have to defend more Senate seats than Democrats.

The winners of those seats will serve a six-year term from January 3, 2021, until January 3, 2027.

As of now, there will be 22 Republican Senate seats on the line, while Democrats will only need to protect 12 seats. The time to start organizing is now.

There are a total of 535 Members of Congress. 100 serve in the U.S. Senate, and 435 serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Each state sends two Senators to represent their state in the U.S. Senate. In the Senate, the majority has the power to schedule when various bills come to the floor for voting, but a single Senator can slow legislation from coming to the floor for a vote.

Since debate in the Senate is not concluded until 60 Senators vote for a cloture motion to approve a bill for consideration, the majority must also coordinate with the minority party to set the rules for debate on legislation.

Under this system, legislation can be debated for one or two weeks on the Senate floor alone.

The current average age of all 100 Senators: 62

Elections to the Senate are staggered over even years so that only about 1/3 of the Senate is up for reelection during any election.
