Elections to the United States Senate will be held November 6, 2018, with 33 of the 100 seats in the Senate being contested in regular elections and two seats being contested in special elections. The winners will serve six-year terms from January 3, 2019, to January 3, 2025. Currently, Democrats have 24 seats up for election, including the seats of two independents who caucus with them. Republicans have nine seats up for election. The seats up for regular election in 2018 were last up for election in 2012; in addition, special elections will be scheduled if vacancies occur, as has already happened in Minnesota and Mississippi. After Russian interference in the 2016 elections, some state election officials are trying to upgrade voting systems in time for this election.[1]

Other elections that will be held on this date include the elections to the U.S. House of Representatives, 39 Governorships as well as various other state and local elections.

Republicans can only afford to have a net loss of one Senate seat and still have a working majority of 50 Senators and Republican Vice President Mike Pence, who is able to cast a tie-breaking vote in accordance with Article One of the United States Constitution. Three of the Republican seats are open as a result of retirements in Tennessee, Utah, and Arizona. Democrats are defending ten seats in states won by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, while Republicans are only defending one seat in a state won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. According to FiveThirtyEight, in 2018, Democrats face the most unfavorable Senate map that any party has ever faced in any election.[2][3]

Focus on competitive races

Democrats are expected to target the Republican-held Senate seats in Arizona (open seat) and Nevada.[4] Democrats could also target seats in Texas,[5] Mississippi (at least one of the two seats) and Tennessee's open-seat.[6] Republicans are expected to target Democratic-held seats in Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia, all of which voted for Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election and Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election,[7] as well as seats in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, all of which voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.[8][4] Other races may also become competitive closer to election day.

Partisan composition

Among the 33 Class 1 Senate seats up for regular election in 2018 are 23 currently held by Democrats, two by independents who caucus with the Senate Democrats, and eight by Republicans. The Class 2 seats in Minnesota and Mississippi held by interim appointees are also up for election; both incumbent appointees are running in their elections to finish the unexpired terms.

Most recent election predictions

Most election predictors use:

  • "tossup": no advantage
  • "tilt" (used sometimes): advantage that is not quite as strong as "lean"
  • "lean": slight advantage
  • "likely" or "favored": significant, but surmountable, advantage (highest ranking given from Fox News)
  • "safe" or "solid": near-certain chance of victory
