The Florida Senate

The Florida Senate is one-half of the Florida Legislature, which is the law-making branch of Florida government.  The Senate is composed of 40 members, each elected from single-member districts across the state.

 

Senators are chosen by the citizens of Florida to represent them and the area (district) where they live. Each member of the Senate must live in the district that he or she represents. Senators are elected to serve four-year terms. Currently, 40 Senators serve the people of Florida.
