There were 6,057 seats up for election on November 4, 2014.

1,098 (55.6%) of the country's 1,972 state senate seats were up for re-election in November 2014, and 4,958 (91.6%) of the country's 5,411 state house seats were up for re-election. Altogether, 6,057 (82.0%) of the country's 7,383 state legislative seats were up for re-election during the midterm election year.

Heading into the 2014 elections, Republicans held a majority of state legislative chambers. Fifty-nine chambers, counting the New York State Senate and Washington State Senate, were under Republican control. (Although the New York State Senate and Washington State Senate technically had Democratic majorities, in both states a coalition arrangement between several break-away Democrats and the minority Republicans gave the Republicans effective control of those chambers.) Democrats held effective controlling majorities in 39 chambers: 18 state senates and 21 state houses. Although technically nonpartisan, the Nebraska State Senate was controlled by a Republican majority.[1]

The following table details partisan balance in all 99 chambers.
