The 2018 Washington State Senate elections are taking place as part of the biennial United States elections. Washington state voters will elect state senators in 25 of the state's 49 Senate districts. The other 24 state senators are not up for re-election until the next biennial election in 2020. State senators serve four-year terms in the Washington State Senate. A statewide map of Washington's state legislative districts is provided by the Washington State Legislature here.

A top two primary election on August 7, 2018 determines which candidates appear on the November 6 general election ballot. Each candidate is allowed to write in her or his party preference so that it appears as she or he desires on the ballot.[1]

Following the 2016 state senate elections, Republicans maintained effective control of the Senate, because self-identified Democrat Tim Sheldon caucuses with the Republicans. However, in 2017 Democrats regained control of the Washington State Senate after Democrat Manka Dhingra won a special election in Washington's 45th legislative district.
