The Zimbabwe Senate election of 2005 was held on 26 November to elect members to the newly formed Zimbabwe Senate. There were a total of 3,239,574 registered voters, of which 631,347 or 19.5% voted. Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF won in a landslide election, garnering over 73% of the popular vote, in what was the nation's first senate elections. The elections were also boycotted by many members of the Movement for Democratic Change as a protest against the suspected election rigging of the 31 March parliamentary election earlier that year, which also saw a low voter turnout of 47.7%.

The decision by some in the MDC to contest the election led to the MDC splitting in two.
