Alabama State Senate
Elections for the office of Alabama State Senator were held in Alabama on November 2, 2010. State senate seats in all 35 districts were on the ballot in 2010. In the election, Republicans won the majority for the first time since reconstruction.

A total of 7 incumbents lost in the general election -- all Democratic.

The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was April 2, 2010, and the primary election day was June 1, 2010.

In Alabama, senators serve four-year terms with no term limits and take office at midnight of the day of their election.

Although Alabama senators serve four-year terms, the elections are not staggered so that half of the seats are up for election every two years. Rather, all 35 seats are up for election on a 2006, 2010, 2014, 2018...schedule. 38 states have state senates where the terms of senators last for four years. Ten of these 38 states, including Alabama, feature non-staggered elections.

The incumbent senator ran for re-election in 27 of the 35 state senate seats that were up for election in 2010. (77.14%)
