The Qualifications Clauses are provisions in the U.S. Constitution that establish the qualifications for elected federal office. For example, Art. I, § 2, Cl 2 of the Constitution states:

No person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.
