Legislative races in 44 states will be conducted in November 2024. These include races in 87 of the nation's 99 legislative chambers. The table below indicates which states and chambers are holding legislative elections, and how many seats are up for reelection this year. No legislative races will be held in Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey or Virginia because they hold state elections in odd-numbered years; in Alabama and Maryland, all legislators in both chambers run on four year-terms that coincide with midterm elections.
A total of 5,793 seats are up for regularly scheduled elections, representing 78% of the nation's 7,386 legislative seats. This page does not include any special elections that may be held in conjunction with the general election or at other times throughout 2024.
The table also provides the size of each legislative chamber and length of terms. Terms in all chambers are either two or four years; no state lawmakers have six-year terms.
