The 2022 elections for the Florida State Senate took place on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, to elect state senators from all 40 districts. Although on ordinary years, 20 senators are elected at a time on a staggered basis, races following redistricting elect all 40 members to ensure that each member represents an equal number of constituents.[1] The Republican Party expanded their Senate majority from 24 to 28, gaining a supermajority in the Senate.[2] The concurrently held House elections also resulted in a supermajority, giving Republicans supermajority control of the legislature.
