2012 Colorado State Senate Races

Note, due to the decennial redistricting process, you may be in a new State Senate District. You can check your district by clicking here to go to Colorado.gov’s district maps. Once there, select ‘State Senate 2012’ under the heading ‘Choose Categories’ on the left.

Since Colorado State Senators are elected to four-year terms, not all Senate Districts have elections this year.

Please contact us to update or correct this information.

Candidates that are incumbents of the designated district are marked and listed first. Other candidates who previously held office and are running in a different district due to redistricting are denoted with an asterisk by their name.
