The U.S. Congress comprises 535 members: 435 in the House of Representatives and 100 in the Senate. Since representatives serve two-year terms, they are all up for reelection every even-numbered year, but senators serve six-year terms, and their terms are staggered such that only one-third of Senate seats are up for reelection in any given election year.

As a handy reference, the following list breaks down, by party and year, when every sitting U.S. senator will next be up for reelection. Thirty-four Senate seats will be contested in the next election on Nov. 8, 2022:
