Arkansas State Senate2012 Arkansas House Elections
Elections for the office of Arkansas State Senate will be held in Arkansas on November 6, 2012. A total of 35 seats will be up for election.

The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was March 1, 2012. The primary election day was May 22, 2012.

Although Arkansas senators typically serve four-year terms, they are elected to a two-year term during the first election of the decade. Thus, rather than only half of all senators being up for election, all sitting members will be on the ballot in November.

Races have begun forming earlier than usual this year as Democrats attempt to reassert themselves after losing seats in both chambers in 2010. Republicans are also campaigning early in hopes of gaining control of the legislature.[1]

Majority control

Heading into the November 6 election, the Democratic Party holds the majority in the Arkansas State Senate:

Impact of redistricting

Governor Mike Beebe's redistricting maps were approved 2-1 in August 2011. Democrats Beebe and Attorney General Dustin McDaniel voted yes, while Republican Secretary of State Mark Martin did not approve. Martin and others have criticized the maps' impacts on the representative districts of the Arkansas House of Representatives. Beebe's map reduces the number of districts with an African American majority from 13 to 11 and pits four pairs of incumbents against each other in 2012. Martin's map would have increased the number of districts with an African American majority to 15 and would have only paired 3 sets of incumbents in 2012. Senator Hank Wilkins defended the current maps, claiming "In order for us to keep three districts (in southeastern Arkansas), in essence the percentage of African-Americans would be so low that in my mind we would not really have majority-minority districts. "We'd have districts that, conceivably we could lose all three African-Americans (in the House), and I was not willing to take that chance."[2]

Redistricting has lesser impacts in the Arkansas State Senate, maintaining the current number of African American dominated districts at four. It also pairs no incumbents against each other in 2012.[2]

Qualifications

Article 5, Section 4 of the Arkansas Constitution states: No person shall be a Senator or Representative who, at the time of his election, is not a citizen of the United States, nor any one who has not been for two years next preceding his election, a resident of this State, and for one year next preceding his election, a resident of the county or district whence he may be chosen. Senators shall be at least twenty-five years of age, and Representatives at least twenty-one years of age.

Term limits

Mary Salmon has represented District 31 of the Arkansas State Senate since 2003.
See also State legislatures with term limits, and Impact of term limits on state senate elections in 2012

The Arkansas State Senate has been a term-limited state senate since Arkansas voters approved the Arkansas Term Limits Initiative in 1992 as an initiated constitutional amendment.

There are 35 Arkansas State Senators, all of whom will be up for re-election in November. In 2012, 10 of them who are current members, or 28.6% of the total senate seats, (7 Democratic state senators and 3 Republican state senators) will be ineligible to run for the senate again in November.

In addition to the 10 state senators who are leaving office because of Arkansas's term limits, 23 state representatives are also termed-out.
