Do you know you state's senators?

Things are heating up for this year’s midterm elections. Democrats are looking to take back the House of Representatives from the Republican majority. The U.S. Senate is also on the table, with a number of seats in 2018 considered competitive for the two parties.

This year’s election could be a turning point, but who is on the ticket? Do people know who their state’s two senators are? To help you learn a bit more about your senators, Stacker compiled a list of each state’s members of senate. Data came from the U.S. Senate website and Ballotpedia, which provided a biography and key issues for each delegate.

Before we begin, can you name your state’s senators? Do you know when their next election is? Read on for the answers, and to learn which states could flip parties in 2018. The list starts off in Alabama with a new delegate to Washington.
