Senate, 1777-

From 1790 until 1838, senators served for a term of five years. Beginning in 1838, senators served six-year terms with one third of the Senate elected every two years. In 1851, a new state constitution reduced the senatorial term to four years and required that half of the senators be elected every two years.
