Consecutive Terms

 

Consecutive terms are terms of office held back to back.

Example:

The congressman was elected to office in 2008, 2010, and 2014. He served for 3 terms.  He held office for 2 consecutive terms, having been reelected in 2010 after winning his first election in 2008.  However, as he lost the election in 2012, he did not serve for 3 consecutive terms.
