Election to the Senate were held on November 11, 1941 in the Philippines. The Senate was re-instituted after amendments to the constitution restored the bicameral legislature last used in 1935.

The elected senators would start to serve only in 1946 as they were not able to take office on December 30, 1941 as Imperial Japan invaded the country on December 8, 1941 at the onset of World War II.

The electorate voted with plurality-at-large voting with closed lists for the first time for the Senate; the voters would only need to write the party name on the ballot and all 24 candidates from the party receive votes. Also, the former senatorial districts were not used; instead voting was done nationwide as one at-large district.[1][2]
