United States Senators are elected to 6-year terms; there is no limit to how many times they can be elected to office. Representatives, on the other hand, only serve 2-year terms.

When a senator gets elected they serve for six years in one term (a representative serves two years in their term.) They can get re-elected as many times as they want until they die or commit a felony. In my opinion, members of congress need to have term limits like the president does so corruption in the capitol would reduce. Some senators have been there for 42 years!

There is no limit on the number of terms by a US Senator. Each term is 6 years and they can be served consecutively or non-consecutively. The only restriction would be from impeachment and removal from office, which could deny future qualification in several states.

About one-third of the Senators in Congress are elected every two years. This means the 33 are up for election at any one time.
