The Constitution establishes the qualifications for members of the House of Representatives and Senate.
  • A Representative must be 25 years of age
  • a citizen of the United States for at least seven years
  • and a legal resident of the state which elects him.
  • A U.S Senator must be at least 30 years old
  • a citizen of the US for the past nine years
  • and a resident of the state which elects him.

The term of a Senator is six years, and they are divided into three Classes so that one third of the Senators face reelection every two years. Members of the House of Representatives are elected every two years. There is no limit on the number of terms a Senator or Representative may serve.
Once elected, a Senator or Representative continues to serve until the expiration of his term, death, or resignation. The Constitution also permits the House to expell any member with a two-thirds vote.
