The members are called Senators and are officially nonpartisan. There are 49 members in the body. The elections for the members are staggered with 25 seats up one election cycle and 24 up the next cycle.  Members are term limited and may serve two four year terms for a total of eight years. The de facto breakdown of the body is thirty republicans, eighteen democrats and one independent. To qualify to run in the Nebraska legislature you must be 21 years of age, a registered voter of the state, a resident of Nebraska and a resident of the district for at least one year prior to the election. The Nebraska session begins on the first Wednesday following the first Monday in January of each year.
