Egan was the only member of the Alaska State Senate who was not up for re-election in 2012. Ordinarily, half (10) of Alaska's senators would have been up for election in 2012, and half would be up for election in 2014. Alaska senators serve staggered four-year terms. However in 2012, every senator except Egan faced re-election due to substantial changes resulting from 2011 redistricting. Egan was displaced by redistricting to District P. With the exception of Egan, who will simply finish his existing four-year term, senators scheduled for the 2014 election were elected to two-year terms in 2012, preserving Alaska's staggered Senate elections.[1]
