The 2022 Washington State Senate elections will take place as part of the biennial United States elections. Washington state voters will elect state senators in 27 of the state's 49 Senate districts. The other 22 state senators are not up for re-election until the next biennial election in 2024. State senators serve four-year terms in the Washington State Senate. A statewide map of Washington's state legislative districts is provided by the Washington State Legislature here.
A top two primary election in August 2022 will determine which candidates appear on the November 6 general election ballot. Each candidate is allowed to write in her or his party preference so that it appears as she or he desires on the ballot.
Following the 2020 state senate elections, Democrats maintained control of the Senate, 28–21. Senators Sharon Brown (R), David Frockt (D), Tim Sheldon (D-MCC), and Keith Wagoner (R) are not seeking re-election. Additionally, Senators Jeannie Darneille (D) and Ann Rivers (R) retired early and their seats will be up for election this cycle.
