Women Running for Ohio State Senate

This file includes data on female candidates for the Ohio State Senate from 1922 (the first year women were elected to the State Senate) to 2012. In the 1960s, the election of state senators was staggered, with half of the Senate up for election every two years. Consequently, beginning in the 1960s, the data are not a reflection of the total number of women who served in the State Senate in a given year, but rather the number of female candidates in each election. In addition, it should be noted that term limits were enacted in 1992, limiting the length of service to eight years or two consecutive terms; the first termed-out members left in 2000.
DATA SOURCE: Ohio Secretary of State

State House members all run for reelection every two years. It should be noted that term limits were enacted in 1992, limiting the length of service to eight years or four consecutive terms; the first termed-out members left in 2000.
