The United States Senate

The United States Senate

Section 3 of the United States Constitution dictates that each state has two senators, regardless of the size of its population. This approach gives equal representation to states regardless of population, and helps to preserve the sovereignty of each state. Accordingly, the Senate consists of 100 members, elected by popular vote for six-year, staggered terms. Since 1789, nearly 2,000 individuals have been a senator; of these, 16 have become U.S. presidents and 23 have been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
