Nebraska State Senate
Elections for the office of Nebraska State Senator will be held in Nebraska on November 2, 2010.

The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was February 15, 2010, and the primary election day was May 11, 2010.

Half of the Senate is up for election, and of those 24 districts, incumbents are running for re-election in 21 of them. Of the remaining 3 districts, 1 incumbent is ineligible to run because of term limits.

State legislative elections in Nebraska are non-partisan. The two candidates who receive the most votes in the primary election go on to face each other in the general election.[1]

There are 49 Nebraska State Senators. In 2010, only one who is a current member is ineligible to run for the senate again in November:
