In a town hall meeting Thursday at Irwin Molasky Middle School in Las Vegas, Democrats, from left, Senate Minority Leader Steven Horsford, state Senate candidate Allison Copening and state Sen. Mike Schneider listen to constituents' suggestions on how to lead the state out of its budget crisis.

Members of the Senate are elected for four-year terms, with 10 senators elected in one general election and 11 senators in the following general election. To be elected to either house of the Legislature, a person must be at least 21 years old at the time of the election, a resident of the state for one year, and a qualified elector and resident in the district to be represented.
