Arkansas was admitted to the Union on June 15, 1836, and elects its senators to Class 2 and Class 3. Arkansas's Senate seats were declared vacant in July 1861, due to its secession from the Union. They were again filled from June 1868. Its current senators are Republicans John Boozman and Tom Cotton. At age 40, Cotton is currently the youngest incumbent Senator, surpassing Connecticut's Chris Murphy, who was 39 years old when first elected in 2012.

List of Senators[edit]

The seat in recent years has been contested in 2002, 2008, and 2014. The next election is in 2020.
