The 2020 Nebraska State Legislature elections took place as part of the biennial United States elections. Nebraska voters elected state senators[a] in the 25 odd-numbered seats of the 49[b] legislative districts in the Nebraska Unicameral. State senators serve four-year terms in the unicameral Nebraska Legislature.

A top two primary election on May 12, 2020 determined which candidates appear on the November 3 general election ballot.[1][2] Each candidate technically runs as a non-partisan (i.e., no party preference). The Nebraska State Legislature's website offers a statewide map of the 49 legislative districts here and maps for each individual district can be found on the website.[3]

Following the 2018 elections, the Republicans maintained effective control of the Nebraska State Legislature with 30 seats. The Democrats increased their numbers from 16 to 18.

Republicans flipped three seats from Democrats; Democrats flipped one seat from Republicans and one from nonpartisan Ernie Chambers.[4]
