Elections to the United States Senate will be held on November 8, 2022 with 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate being contested in regular elections, the winners of which will serve six-year terms in the United States Congress from January 3, 2023 to January 3, 2029. Senators are divided into three groups, or Classes, whose terms are staggered so that a different class is elected every two years. Class 3 Senators were last elected in 2016, and will be up for election again in 2022. The age of the incumbent senator is provided below, presuming he or she is still living and in office at the time.

If vacancies occur in Class 1 or Class 2 Senate seats, the state might require a special election to take place during the 118th Congress, possibly concurrently with the other 2022 Senate elections.
