Current United States Senate

The United States Senate, alongside the U.S. House of Representatives, is part of the United States Congress, the legislative branch of the federal government. Article One (Section 1 and Section 3) of the U.S. Constitution provides for the establishment, composition and election process of the U.S. Senate.

The U.S. Senate is headed by the Vice President of the United States, in his capacity as the President of the Senate, or in his absence, a President pro tempore. The person holds no direct vote in Senate proceedings, unless there is a tie.

Conceptually, the Senate is meant to preserve and defend the Union, as opposed to the House, which is tasked with preserving the rights and privileges of the states. Constitutionally, the Senate is charged with ratifying treaties, approving presidential appointments, and judging impeachment cases.

Senators, two from each state, must be citizens of the United States for no less than nine years at the time of his/her election, must be at least 30 years of age, and must be a resident of the state they represent. Prior to the ratification of the 17th Amendment on April 8, 1913, U.S. Senators were elected by state legislatures. However, Senators today are elected directly by the states’ citizens.

The term of office for each of the 100 Senators is six years. However, in order to preserve an element of continuity and prevent the development of power blocs inside the Senate, Senators are divided into three classes, and the elections of each class are conducted every two years.

To ensure the continuous representation of each state in the Senate, no two state senators belong in the same class. In the event of deaths, impeachments and resignations, state governors (except the governors of Alaska, Oregon, and Wisconsin) are required to appoint an interim senator until a special election, or the next scheduled election, is held.

The 100 U.S. Senators are divided into three equal classes, each consisting of 33 or 34 Senators.

The 2016 senatorial election will feature thirty-four Class III Senators.
