Revision as of 13:45, 14 September 2010

Elections for the office of Missouri State Senate will be held in Missouri on November 2, 2010. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was March 30, 2010 and the primary election day is on August 3, 2010.

Half of the senate is up for re-election every two years. State senators are term limited to two four-year terms.

Incumbents are running in 7 out of the 17 districts up for re-election. These include districts # 2, 4, 10, 12, 16, 18 and 22. In the remaining 10 districts, every incumbent is ineligible to run because of term limits.

Term limits

See also: State legislatures with term limits

The Missouri State Senate has been a term-limited state senate since Missouri voters approved Amendment 13 in 1992. Amendment 13 created Section 8 of Article III of the Missouri Constitution, limiting state senators to 2 4-year terms. This is a lifetime limit, as is the case in 5 other states with state legislative term limits. Section 8 was later amended by Amendment 3 in 2002 so that it does not apply to partial terms.

Altogether there are 34 Missouri State Senators. In 2010, 10 of them who are current members are ineligible to run for the senate again in November. They are:

Democrats (2):


Republicans (8):
