In North Carolina there are two chambers. The Senate and the House of Representatives. There are 50 Senators and 120 members in the House. To run for the Senate you must be 25 years of age at the time of the election, a registered voter of the state, lived in the state for two years prior to the election and a resident of the district for at least one year. To run for the House you must be a registered voter of the state and a resident of the district for one year prior to the election. The constitution states that no elected official may be younger than 21 years of age but it is not strictly enforced. Session begins in January of each odd numbered year. All seats are elected every two years. There is no time limit on the session but it generally lasts six months. That is the long session. In even numbered years there is a short session which lasts about six weeks. The Republicans control both chambers.
