Length of Service - Current Senate Members

Service is counted in number of days, not in years, sessions, or terms. Counting days in office accounts for partial terms of current legislators as they serve in the Legislature. Former members may also have partial terms due to death or resignation.

Anton J. Rockne and Carl Iverson are tied for the longest-serving legislator, when counting service in both bodies. Donald Wright's length of service would be tied with Iverson and Rockne's if his four-month service in late 1954 is counted as legislative service.

Anton J. Rockne has the longest Senate tenure. Willard Munger was the longest serving member of the Minnesota House of Representatives.
