A U.S. senator represents all the people in a state. Each state has two senators. Every citizen who is over 18 and living in a state can vote for both senators from that state. The number of U.S. senators does not change if a state has more people or fewer people living in it. This way, every state has equal representation in the Senate. U.S. senators represent all the people of the state.
