The 2018 Texas State Senate elections took place as part of the biennial United States elections. Texas voters elected state senators in 15 of the state senate's 31 districts. State senators serve four-year terms in the Texas State Senate. A statewide map of Texas's state Senate districts can be obtained from the Texas Legislative Council here, and individual district maps can be obtained from the U.S. Census here.

A primary election on March 6, 2018, determined which candidates appeared on the November 6 general election ballot. Primary election results can be obtained from the Texas Secretary of State's website.[1]

Following the 2016 state senate elections, Republicans maintained effective control of the Senate with 20 members.

To claim control of the chamber from Republicans, the Democrats would have needed to net five Senate seats. The Democratic Party gained one seat, leaving the Republicans with a 19 to 12 majority in the chamber.
