The West Virginia State Legislature consists of two chambers - the Senate and the House of Delegates. There are 34 Senators and 100 Delegates. The regular session convenes on the second Wednesday of January each year and lasts 60 days, but can be extended by a two-thirds vote of members from both chambers.
Senators serve four-year terms. These terms are staggered with an election held every two years. The members of the House of Delegates serve two-year terms.
To qualify as a candidate for Senate, you must be 25 years of age, a resident of the state for at least five years and a resident of the district for a one year prior to the election.
To run for the House of Delegates you must be 18 years of age and a resident of the district for at least one year prior to the election.
There are no term limits in this state.
The Republicans hold a trifecta here.
