SENATE CLASSES (DETERMINE WHEN RE-ELECTION HAPPENS)

http://www.senate.gov/reference/glossary_term/class.htm

Article 1 sect 3 of the Constitution requires the Senate to be divided into three classes for purposes of elections. Senators are elected to six-year terms, and every two years the members of one class — approximately one-third of the senators-face election or reelection. Terms for senators in Class I expire in 2019, Class II in 2015, and Class III in 2017.
